I used to make something very similar for the monthly dinner of one of my Lodge groups and it comes out really good. I used a red Sauce with peppers in it once,

Wanda Barefoot says:

This looks great and it’s what’s for dinner! Although I will be substituting spaghetti noodles as I’m out of macaroni. I have to say that I’m glad you showed us this method with the Pyrex dish. I’m also in a wheelchair and draining the pasta is very frightening at times. This will help tremendously. Thanks!

Marge Pellew says:

It looks excellent. I made your Salisbury steak recipe…excellent! I will give this a try too!

You need a new pan.

Freedom_Guitar says:

I always knew this as “hot dish”. Great job, I’d eat it up!

Mandy Clarke says:

I’m watching this in 2018. You still in a wheelchair, dude? That’s the first I’ve heard, and I’ve defended your hands before.
I’m going with you having had a stroke, and I’m incredibly impressed that you have managed to maintain this YouTube channel. You go!

Steve Logan says:

I like this recipe Larry, i saw something similar on a food network show called something like yankee doodle casserole, which being from the the south , i almost wasn’t interested. I like your recipe better. I am not confined to a wheelchair, but i have had 19 scope surgeries on my lower back so i can’t stand in 1 place very long. Plus my right hand was severed and reattached, but the dexterity is poor. Any tips you might have that you use when cooking would be appreciated, have a good day buddy.

Inez Neal says:

I’m sorry I can’t buy you one.

mustluvkatina says:

caitlyn mousley says:

just a question, why are you in a wheelchair!!!

Ralph Cramden says:

wolfepit, you da man !…….subcribed.

Ladderthief1 says:

It’s like Hamburger Helper, but a lot more healthier.

Jeff Stanley says:

I know that you portray a professional, however; I blew up a crock pot liner by heating it on the stove top. It was my fault for putting it on the stovetop and for setting the heat to too high a temperature. I was trying to liquefy some grease. In any case, this was a bad example. I am still a fan and am glad you had a vid on how to include UNCOOKED pasta into a dish.

Yidris says:

I never knew you were in a wheelchair. Your videos are so well done, I never would have guessed.

Jeff Stanley says:

You explained your reason for cooking on the stovetop with Pyrex. But, why didn’t you just put the mix back into the cast iron or another suitable metal container? I know, you are going to say that you should not put tomato based foods into cast iron. BS, just clean and lightly reseason if you are afraid that you ruined the seasoning. You are talking to a guy that put a crock pot liner on the stovetop that had a lot of grease in it to liquefy the grease and pour it off in order to clean it. I admit, I turned the burner onto to high a setting and the crock pot broke all to pieces. So now I have broken crock pot and grease running all over my stovetop and the smoke detector is going crazy with the resultant smoke from the now burning grease. There was no fire just a hell of a mess. If it had not been a smooth top stove can you imagine that mess???!!!!!! Be safe.

Looks delicious

Lee Troutner says:

Until I watched this video, I had no idea that you were in a wheelchair. Is that still the case for you Mr. Wolfepit?

Dream Electric says:

Beefaroni is what we used to call it when i was a kid. Looks like some serious comfort food.

Janice Chaudhury says:

Looks absolutely delicious and easy to make. Thank you for a great video.

I make something similar but simpler. 8 ounces of pasta is a half- pound. 16 ounces of anything is a pound.
