One-pot Macaroni with Beef & Tomatoes

Submitted by: DANYMAN

Introduction

This is a pretty basic easy casserole. Next time I will try adding Feta cheese to give it a different taste. If that works I'll modify the recipe. This is a pretty basic easy casserole. Next time I will try adding Feta cheese to give it a different taste. If that works I'll modify the recipe.

Ingredients

    500 gm lean ground beef
    1 cup chopped onion
    3 cloves garlic, minced
    1 cup chopped red pepper
    2 carrots, thinly sliced
    2 tsp each dried oregano & basil
    1/2 tsp each salt & pepper
    2 14oz cans crushed tomatoes
    2 cups whole-wheat macaroni
    1/4 cup shredded low-fat cheddar cheese
    1/4 cup minced fresh parsley

Directions

In Dutch oven or large deep saucepan, saute beef over medium-high heat, breaking up with spoon, until no longer pink, drain off any fat.

Add onion, garlic, red pepper, carrots, and all spices to pan; cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until onion is softened, about 5 minutes.

Add tomatoes & 3 cups water; bring to a boil. Stir in macaroni; reduce heat, cover and simmer, stirring occasionally, until pasta is tender but firm, about 20 minutes.

Sprinkle with Cheddar cheese and parsley, continue simmering until cheese has melted.

  • So easy and so good. Took only one cup of noodles instead of two. I had only "normal" noodles (not whole wheat) in my cupboard and the recipe turned out just fine. Would def make that again. - 11/24/10
