Retrofood: Beef-Macaroni Casserole

Retrofood: Beef-Macaroni Casserole

There are days when some retro foods come to mind and then you just have to have it. Our cantine at work is doing retro themed autumn menu right now and it got me thinking of all the good things that I have eaten years back, but have not cooked in a long while. This Beef-Macaroni Casserole is jazzed up a bit, and is not as bland as it used to be, so I can proudly introduce the re-newed version for your taste buds only!

Enjoy!

Notes
  1. Serve with a little bit of parmesan and with a side of greens if you feel up to it. I love to add ketchup over this dish to give it some sweetness.
