very basic great tasting comfort food

  • Total Time: 30 min.


1 lb Ground Beef Browned
2 Large Onions Sliced or Chopped
½ tsp Red Pepper Flakes From Dried Hot Peppers
1 bag Elbow Macaroni Small or Large Size, cooked
1 can Crushed Tomatoes Large Can
1 tsp Lawry's Garlic Salt, to taste
¼ tsp Pepper, to taste
1 tsp Chili Powder, to taste


Saute beef, 1/2 tsp of red pepper flakes and 2 onions in large frying pan. Drain excess fat. Lots of onions makes this good.

Meanwhile, in another pan cook macaroni in boiling, salted water until

tender. (approximately 5 minutes for the smaller sized macaroni). Set aside until almost ready to serve.

When beef and onions are finished cooking, add the canned, crushed tomatores and approximately 1/2 cup water; also add garlic salt, pepper, chili powder and mix well.

Simmer for about 20 minutes; then add cooked macaroni noodles and mix well when ready to serve. If you add the macaroni noodles

too soon, they may over cook and get mushy.
