A Meal in One

A Meal in One created by Nanita

This is an easy and quick recipe that my Grandmother makes often. It's a long time family favorite. She likes to clip recipes out of the local newspaper so that's probably where this came from. My children, ages 6 and 7, love this dish.

    easy and smart! I added Spanish olives and treated the ground meat like "Picadillo" it really made it great! But I love it just the way it is!

    This was quick and good. Tastes just like Hamburger Helper Chili Mac, but better. The ratio of hamburger to noodles wasn't right for me though, so I used 1 & 1/2 cups of macaroni and 15 oz of tomato sauce.
