Description

One of my husband’s favorite comfort foods with macaroni, ground beef, pasta sauce and plenty of catsup.


Ingredients

  • 12 ounces elbow macaroni
  • Salt and pepper
  • 2 pounds ground beef
  • 1 cup frozen, chopped onion
  • 1/4 cup chopped red bell pepper
  • 2 celery ribs, chopped finely
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1 (29-ounce) can tomato or pasta sauce
  • 1 (14.5-ounce) can diced tomatoes
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup catsup
  • a quick squirt of Sriracha
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, grated

Instructions

  1. Boil pasta in salted water for 3 minutes. Drain, rinse with cold water, and set aside.
  2. Brown ground beef. Season with salt and pepper. Drain off excess grease. Remove from pan and set aside.
  3. Saute onion, bell pepper, and celery in same pan until softened and lightly browned. Add tomato paste and stir, continuing to cook for about 2 minutes. Add garlic and red pepper flakes along with tomato sauce, tomatoes, water, and cooked ground beef. Simmer until vegetables are tender, 15-20 minutes.
  4. Remove from heat, stir in macaroni, cover and allow to sit about 10 minutes.
  5. Stir in catsup, Sriracha and cheese. (If you don’t have Parmesan, we like cheddar cheese, too.)
  6. Season with salt and pepper. Garnish with additional Parmesan if desired.
