One Pot Homemade Beefaroni | LemonyThyme.com

Perhaps the dish I remember most from my childhood is Beefaroni.  Not the canned type, but Homemade Beefaroni, that I think we had every week.  It’s affordable, easy to prepare, family friendly, and so delicious.  For that reason I consider this a comfort food recipe.

I made One Pot Homemade Beefaroni on Sunday and have been enjoying it for lunch this week.  This recipe makes 12 servings so it’s a great family meal or pot luck dish to share.

One Pot Homemade Beefaroni Steps

The above step-by-step pictures basically illustrate just how easy this dish is to prepare. I must be honest and tell you that I have admired “One-Pot” dishes for months on Pinterest.  This was my first attempt.  I found the key to even cooking of the elbows was to stir a couple times during the simmering process, other than that….ONE POT people!! Bam!!
