  1. Quick question…….do you mean 1 1/2 cups raw macaroni that you then cook OR is it 1 1/2 cups cooked macaroni? Thanks!

  2. Absolutely delicious and easy to assemble. I took this to a work potluck , and it was literally gone in minutes. The bowl was scraped clean! Thank you for a lovely recipe.5 stars

    1. You are so welcome and thank you for your wonderful comment. So happy they enjoyed this recipe and happy to have you as part of our community.

  3. Oh my goodness, this was so yummy, love, love, love the sauce…thank you
    I did added one small minced clove of garlic to the sauce, I didn’t have kidney beans so I used drained and rinsed chili beans, hey it gave it a little heat….tossed in some sugar snap peas I had on hand.5 stars

  4. We live in the desert and this is great meal with garlic bread sticks on a Hot Summer Night or for a picnic up on the Mountain! Thanks.5 stars

  5. Made this today & love it! Very healthy with all the veggies & beans. Has just the right amount of sweet & sour dressing to coat everything. Not a lot of wasted dressing in the bottom of the bowl. I’ll make this one again! Thanks!5 stars

  6. YUM this is my dinner table tomorrow night. Will exchange the green pepper for red since neither hubby nor me care that much for green. Thanks for sharing

  7. this looks very tasty. I love sweet and sour anything…Joe …not so crazy about the sweet. I’ll have to make it for myself. Hope your winter is going well…Spring’s on it’s way.
