Berbere skillet cheesy beef and veggie macaroni

Back in the day my grandma always used to cook macaroni for me, so I thought it’d be inspirational for me to come up with a similar recipe but with a little change to it to include the berbere spice, so that’s when it came to me to make a skillet cheesy beef and veggie macaroni.

I showed this Recipe to Noel and he loved it, he suggests that on a special weekday you might want to check out this amazing berbere skillet macaroni. With a layer of cheddar cheese, tomato sauce, beef and macaroni you can achieve this delicious masterpiece.
