Macaroni Pasta and Honeybeans

Macrewa is soon becoming a legend… It was coined out of its two main ingredients- macaroni and ewa (which means beans in Yoruba). This rev came as a result of Obafemi Awolowo University Awo Hostel boys who are renowned to make spaghetti with beans- “Spagewa”. The other reason I like the name is because I need a MacBook Pro like soonest…

When I first made this, I ate it in the middle of the night; my roommate joined me- that’s completely against her diet rules… but that night, it didn’t matter because it couldn’t wait!

Amazeballs! yes! yes! finally found a reason to use this word.

Here’s the simple recipe;
