DIRECTIONS

  • Cook macaroni as directed on package; drain well and set aside.
  • Preheat oven to 350F degrees.
  • In a large frying pan, in batches if necessary, brown ground beef, then transfer to a very large pot.
  • Stir in raw onions, garlic powder, tomatoes, spaghetti sauce, mushrooms and their liquid.
  • Bring to a boil, then simmer, stirring occasionally, for 20 minutes or until onions are tender.
  • Remove from heat.
  • In a large-sized roaster (the kind you'd do a turkey in), spread half the macaroni, then top with half the meat sauce.
  • Top that with half the sour cream, then half the sliced cheddar.
  • Now top that with the remaining macaroni, then the remaining meat sauce, then the remaining sour cream, then the remaining cheddar.
  • Top with all the mozzarella.
  • Cover roasting pan and bake in preheated oven for 75 minutes, or until hot and bubbling.
  • Remove cover and, if cheese hasn't completely melted, let bake for a few more minutes until it has.
