Skillet Macaroni & Beef

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Fancy Free

This is an easy to prepare, one skillet dinner. I don't remember where I got it, but my family loves it and asks for it often. It is a good potluck dish if you double, or triple it. People will ask for your goulash recipe.

This was good and easy to make. I had a pound of precooked burger in the freezer which made this even quicker to make for dinner. I used 12 ounces of pot pie bows as that is what I had on hand. I used 3 8 ounce cans of tomato sauce. I started with 2 cups of water but ending up adding about a cup more. I also added a boullion cube, 1/2 teaspoon of salt, the 1/4 teaspoon of pepper, the onions and peppers and the worcestershire sauce. I didn't add the mushrooms. We all enjoyed this. I topped mine with parmesan cheese.
