Well, the canned stuff must be macaroni & cheese combined with beef. Y'know, Chef Boyardee? I've never tried it, myself. (My real Italian father would shudder at the thought of it!) I imagine the homemade stuff would be quite a step up!

... or else it's one of those things like "Hamburger Helper" that come in a box; just add water... oh, and beef. Guess we'll have to wait for ff to weigh in on this one.

Beef-a-roni came from Chef Boy-R-Dee. I loved it when I was a kid, but I think it would make me ill if I were to eat it today. It's like a macaroni goulash kinda thing. I don't remember there being any cheese in it. If I recall, the elbow macaronis were not hollow.

curiously, there was a real Chef Boyardee.. and he actually was a good cook -- (not to say the canned stuff is any good..
But Chef Boyardee was indeed a real person, born Hector Boiardi in northern Italy in 1898... more at
http://www.snopes2.com/business/names/boyardee.htm

the plain canned sause (not macaroni and sause in a can) used to be pretty good, (it was a very mild, bland sause) i remember having it as a kid (till teen years) but the canned macaroni and sause was crummy even when i was a kid--the sause was too sweet, and had an "off flavor".

Oh, yes...Beefaroni! That wonderful concoction made by Chef Boy-ar-dee. My daughter still loves it. Inch long tube shaped pasta with no whole in it, meat suspected beef and, ummm...delicious gag-me-with-a-spoon seasoned tomato sauce. Scrumptious! [holding-my-nose-e]

suspected beef

My dad worked for a meat packing company. The suspected beef is definitely a beef product but nothing you'd usually eat or want to eat. I won't get into it here because it is not appetizing at all.

Just realize that when the ad says 100% pure beef that the nose of beef is still beef.

Which brings us back full circle to Fast Food Nation. Someone must really PM me and tell me you've read it!

I don't see how anyone could eat that stuff unless they were being forced to or something. The only good macaroni-type dinner is made by my mom, who got it from her mom. The recipe probably came from some italian guy stuck in the Baltics in 1450 or so.
