Cheeseburger Macaroni Part II
I love Cheeseburger Macaroni and have made it several times, each time changing it up a bit. I was feeling poorly earlier this week and craving total comfort food, so I decided to whip some up.
I added a few new ingredients to my usual recipe and it was better than ever! FYI this recipe makes enough for an Army!
1 box elbow macaroni
1 lb ground beef
1 lb ground pork
1 yellow onion, diced
2 tsp minced garlic
2 small cans of tomato sauce or 1 large can
1 can of Campbells Cheese Soup
8 ounces of shredded sharp cheddar cheese (as Paula says grate it yourself)
salt and pepper to taste
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp smoked paprika
1 small tub of cream cheese
*cook your ground beef and sausage in a non stick pan, when it is about half way thru cooking add your onion, garlic, salt, pepper and the rest of the spices
*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, cream cheese, cheddar, soup 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**
