Macaroni & Hamburger



This is a quick and easy meal that my Mom used to make for us all the time when we were growing up. Mom is an amazing cook, she always made extravagant meals for us, but sometimes the simple comfort food recipes were the best kind. As you will see this is a vegetable-less casserole, but feel free to throw in some peppers, it's been done. I personally like the recipe as is with a nice garden salad and some fresh bread on the side. It takes less than 30 minutes to make, a few ingredients go a long way, and it's even better the next day. Just remember, it's comfort food!

 
Boil a large pot of salted water, cook 1 BAG MACARONI NOODLES
Dice 1 LG ONION, and sauté in a pan with 1/2 tbsp. of minced or bottled garlic.
When onion is translucent, cook and crumble 1LB GROUND BEEF in same pan.
Drain cooked noodles.
Add cooked ground beef and onions to drained noodles in same pot.
Add 2 CANS CAMPBELL'S BASIL & OREGANO TOMATO SOUP.
Add 1 CAN DICED TOMATOES, juice and all.
Add 1 CAN TOMATO PASTE
 
Add a generous sprinkle of PARMESAN CHEESE and Shredded Cheese of your choice.
Combine all ingredients, warm on stove or bake in the oven with added cheese, and serve with bread, salad and a cold glass of milk!

  2. It's so easy, and although it doesn't look or even sound too appealing, it's a comfort food classic I will never get tired of!
    Thank you for reading :)
