He than took it upon himself to search for a good recipe. He checked Joy of Cooking but found nothing so he went to the internet and simply googled "what to make with ground beef". While searching the results he came across a simple pasta recipe.
The recipe was good and filling but I think we need to spice it up a bit next time!
Macaroni with Beef & Tomatoes
- 1 pound elbow macaroni
- 1 pound ground beef
- 1 teaspoon allspice
- 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
- 1 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 red onion, chopped
- 1 can diced tomatoes
- 1 jar spaghetti sauce
In the meantime, in a large pot, begin browning the ground beef over medium-high heat. After 5 minutes, add the spices, onion, and Worcestershire sauce. Cook until beef is browned and onion is tender. Add canned tomatoes and cook for 2 minutes. Add spaghetti sauce and stir. Bring to a boil, then cover and simmer for 15-30 minutes (depending on how much time you have).
Add cooked and drained pasta to the sauce and stir well. Serve with grated Parmesan cheese if desired.
