Beef and Veg Macaroni

by Katrina - The Organised Housewife

An easy Beef and Veg Macaroni recipe that the kids will love – the leftovers can even be plated up on toast the next night!

If you’re looking for an easy and quick weeknight dinner option (that the kids will actually eat!), this Beef and Veggie Macaroni recipe ticks all the boxes! What kid can pass on mince and macaroni?! You can easily sneak a few veggies into this meal too.

I often use peas and corn in my recipe, but you could add in carrot, capsicum, cauliflower – whatever vegetables you like. The brilliant bonus with this recipe is that you could easily double this dinner and have the leftovers on toast the next night!

Left overs would go great in a thermos in the kids’ school lunch boxes too!

Thankyou so much for all these ideas! Just one question..if I reheat fried rice and put in thermos flask for my sons school lunch, will it stay safe to eat? And how long do I heat the rice in the microwave? Thankyou xx

You do need to be careful with leftover rice, please use your own judgement in this regards. I’m quite happy to re-use rice from last night’s dinner, if it was refrigerated straight away. I heat until it is piping hot.
