Easy Homemade Beefaroni

Family-friendly Relatively quick Homemade


Heat oil, then cook the onions until translucent. Add garlic and cook for another 30 seconds. Finally, add your ground beef. Cook it for 2-3 minutes or until it’s partially browned. Make sure to break it up with a fork or spatula as you go.

Stir in your tomato sauce and paste. Bring the mixture to a gentle boil and cook this for about 5 minutes. After that, pour in 1 ½ cups of your beef broth and simmer it on low for another 5 minutes.

Then add the remaining beef broth, as well as the uncooked macaroni, and bring it all back up to a boil. When the pasta is done, add shredded cheddar cheese.

Leftover beefaroni will keep in the fridge for 3-4 days. Keep it in an airtight container and reheat in the microwave.

This makes about 6 servings, so enough for most families. If you're cooking for 2 or 3, the leftovers freeze really well.
