I make this almost every week. My husband is EXTREMELY picky and he loves it. I took a recipe his mother used to make and made it better. Hope you enjoy. I never really measure. So I did my best at estimating the herbs.


  1. In lg skillet on medium heat add tablespoon olive oil, onion and garlic. Saute till translucent.
  2. Add beef cook thoughly.
  3. Drain.
  4. Add can of tomatoes, oregano, water, and macaroni.
  5. Cover cook 10-12 minutes
  6. Add basil. Stir.
  7. Cook till water has cooked down.
  8. Serve.
  9. Note* Taste better the next day.
  10. Also if you don't have the herbs handy, I suggest getting 2 16oz cans Del Monte tomatoes w/ basil, garlic, and oregano. It is just as good, if not better on the first day. Enjoy.
