Another recommendation from my Grandmother!


  1. Brown beef in a large, deep pot with onion, garlic powder, salt, pepper and Worchestershire sauce.
  2. Cook macaroni separately according to package directions.
  3. When beef is cooked add tomato paste and prepared macaroni.
  4. Mix throughly.
  5. Cook over low heat until thickened. Add grated cheese on top, if desired. Cover and set aside for 5 mins before serving.

I've been making this for years. Sometimes I throw in a can of mixed vegetables or corn that has been drained. It seems men and kids really like this dish. Thanks for posting.

This was a great, quick, kid friendly meal. I think next time I'll add tomatoes in place of tomato paste.

I was working on cleaning out the pantry, before I bought more groceries and came across this recipe. I had all these ingrediants on hand! My kids both loved it, and I like how simple it is to throw together! Will be a definite keeper in our house!
