This is the ARO Restaurant in Sundance, Wyoming, I found this recipe while browsing and we were all suprised on how well it sold. Thank you for submitting this recipe. You are acknowleged for it.
I THOUGHT THIS WAS OKAY. IT WAS VERY BLAND. I ADDED HOT SAUCE, EXTRA SEASONING AND ALOT OF SALT TO GIVE IT IN FLAVOR. IT WAS QUICK AND EASY SO I MIGHT MAKE IT IN AGAIN IF IM IN A HURRY.
This is a very yummy recipe, but I'm not sure how much it reminds me of a stew. It's like a stew/chilli/hamburger helper/soup, type of thing. Very good and easy though. I left out the celery because I didn't have any. For the vegetables I used a 1/2 cup of canned diced tomatoes, 1/2 cup of frozen corn, 1/2 cup frozen green beans, and a 1/2 cup of frozen peas. Used shell noodles instead of macaroni and kept everything else about the recipe the same. Husband really liked it and so do I.
I really liked this quick meal. I left out the carrots so it was fast and used wide egg noodles instead of elbow. I also used more sauce and less water so it was kinda like a stew, it was great!
I just started looking at this web-site, this was the first recipe I used & it was a HIT! My husband did not leave any leftovers and even DEMANDED I make it again! Thanks!
I thought this was very good, and very easy to make. I too added some garlic. Only problem was I used Italian style mixed veggies, and they are pretty large cuts, they took alittle longer to get tender, next time I would cook them a little while in the micowave before adding to the stew. I will make this again.
Made this with a large can of V-8 juice instead of water and tomato sauce. Also didn't use celery and fresh carrots, only the frozen veggies.
My family loved it - more than I did! I did as others mentioned and added more italian seasoning as well as some garlic powder. I had no frozen veggies so used fresh green beans, along with the carrots, celery and onion. I also added more pasta to make it more of a meal, instead of a stew. I say 4 stars, my family says 5!
