Cheeseburger Macaroni

The weather has been dreary and I wanted comfort food. I have fond memories of eating Cheeseburger Macaroni at school when I was a kid, although I am sure it was from a box!. I wanted to re-create it from scratch, and it was a HUGE hit. My husband is not a big eater but he had seconds!

1 box elbow macaroni
2 lbs ground beef, I use 7% lean (you could use turkey)
1/2 red onion diced
1 tsp garlic
2 small cans tomato sauce
1 can of Campbell's cheese soup
1.5 to 2 cups of shredded cheese (any variety you wish)
salt and pepper to taste

*cook your ground beef in a non stick pan, when it is about half way thru cooking add your onion, garlic, salt and pepper
*cook your macaroni to "al dente", drain and set aside in a large bowl *combine the soup, 2 cans of tomato sauce, shredded cheese, cooked meat and the noodles, stir until well incorporated
*pour into a greased 9x13 pan
*cook at 350 for 30 minutes or until bubbly
**I served with garlic cheese bread and steamed green beans**

I just entered the Tastes To Remember blogging event at Sarah's, you can too!

Oh yeah a can of cheese soup what a great addition!
Thanks for sharing that - I never would have thought of that.
Cheese rules!

I just made something similar to this the other day. I used ground turkey instead of ground beef. I like the soup idea,I'll have to try it.
