This is a Paula Deen recipe from Good Housekeeping magazine. I scribbled it down in the doctor's office on the back of a receipt and it looks really good.

  1. Cook the beef, drain.
  2. Add onions and garlic. Saute for about 10 minutes.
  3. Stir in everything else BUT the macaroni.
  4. Heat to boiling, simmer 20 minutes.
  5. Stir in macaroni, heat to boiling. Simmer 20 minutes.
  6. Remove from heat and let sit for 30 minutes.
  7. I'd be curious to see if the macaroni got overdone with these cooking/sitting times. I think that I'd check it after that last 20 minute simmer. Also, I'm not sure about the measurements for the alternative house seasoning. That's what the magazine said, but I bet it will need more than 1/2 teaspoons of each.

I made this for my son & grand girls dinner last night. I did make 1/2 recipe (still had tons of left overs) and did use 1/2 ground beef & 1/2 ground turkey (as per FoodTV site recipe). Otherwise, made as you posted. This is very good and very easy to fix recipe. We enjoyed this very much & I am sure I will make this again and again. Served with salad, roasted butternut squash and Tippins Cornbread 2. Thanks Lalaflutist for posting Paula's great recipe!

This was pretty good, but I thought the soy sauce was overpowering. I will omit that ingredient the next time I make this dish, and maybe I'll increase the herbs a bit to compensate for the loss of the soy sauce. Thank you for sharing your recipe, Lalaflutist. We enjoyed the dish, which I made for Spring 2013 Pick-A-Chef.

I have made this several times and in regards to your notation on the noodles. I put the noodles in and let them rest the 30 minutes at the end. The noodles come out perfect. Great recipe!
