Weird longish tubular nooodles in a beef sauce, with bits of beef-like substance. Made by Chef Boyardee. Blech. I used to love it, though, and ate a can after school each day, until I realized that after eating it I would always fall asleep. That concept kind of grossed me out, so I gave it up. That was in 1992. Do they still make this stuff?

From the Saturday morning cartoon vault, two early Beefaroni TV commercials. First, a live-action one with a little boy (appears to be in Brooklyn, and of Italian descent) is seen running home from school to get his pasta. This aired on the "Casper" cartoon show over ABC (3/21/64). Second, an animated ad with a two-headed beast. One liked Beefaroni. The other liked the new Beef-O-Getti (with meatballs). Each feeds the other his favorite, they change their minds. This aired on the "Doctor Dolittle" cartoon show over NBC (10/10/70). Since 1954, Chef Boy At Dee Beefaroni has, and still is, delicious.

Some supermarket chains have started offering Chef Boy Ar Dee "Throwback Pastas>" These are claimed to duplicate how Beefaroni, Lasagna, Ravioli and Spaghetti were made 60 years ago, using more meat and thicker sauce (not as runny). These are all in yellow cans with the younger-looking Chef's picture on them. Kroger stores have them. Con Agra may even bring back the Chef's frozen pizza, which was sold in the mid 1960s, but not very popular.

Picked up cans of Throwback Recipe Beefaroni and Ravioli. Kroger had them on sale 2/$3 (reg. $1.89). These taste better than modern day recipe. Romano Cheese, Angus Beef pieces and sauce made with tomatoes from California included (printed on label). Plus, no high-fructose corn syrup. Brief tribute to Chef Boiardi also printed.
