I don't know how authentic this recipe is, but this has always been one of my of my favorite recipes that my mom makes! This dish was always one of her favorites growing up, so it has been handed down a couple of generations in my family. It is inexpensive and easy to make. We always have it with applesauce and garlic bread. Enjoy!

- 8 ounces elbow macaroni
- 1⁄2 cup chopped green pepper

- Cook elbow noodles until not quite done; drain and set aside.
- Brown the meat with peppers, onions, salt, pepper & garlic. Drain if.

- Cook for 15-20 minutes until most of the liquid has cooked down.
- I generally give a taste test and add more salt and probably more powdered.
