I found this yummy sounding recipe online. It's from the cookbook "Diabetes Meal Planning on $7 a Day Or Less!" Time does not include time to cook the macaroni or any small shaped pasta.
- 1 lb ground chuck
- 1 large onion, chopped
- 1⁄2 green pepper, diced
- 1 (15 1/4 ounce) can corn, drained, rinsed
- 1 (10 ounce) can Rotel Tomatoes
- 1 (8 ounce) can tomato sauce
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄8 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
- 1 teaspoon chili powder (or more)
- 1 cup cooked macaroni
- 1 tablespoon cornstarch, dissolved in 1/4 cup cold water
- In a large skillet over medium heat, brown and drain ground chuck.
- Add onion, green pepper, corn, tomatoes and green chilies, tomato sauce, salt, pepper, and chili powder; mix well.
- Cook uncovered over medium heat for 15 minutes; stir periodically.
- Add macaroni and cornstarch dissolved in water; stir well.
- Continue cooking and stirring over medium heat until mixture thickens, about 2 to 3 minutes.

Kind of like a mexican goulash... didn't really do it for us.
This is a grand week night dinner for the working cook. It's very quick and tasty. I used Yves veggie Ground Round, crushed tomatoes (Canada doesn't have Rotel) and frozen corn. I topped my serving with a slice of fat free cheddar cheese. I used 2 tsps of chili powder. I enjoyed this and will enjoy the leftovers soon. Thanks Vic. Made for Photo Tag
