Everyone needs dishes like this to turn to on a busy weekday or when it is too hot outside to turn on the oven. Everything is prepared in one skillet so assembling the ingredients is so easy and the result is well worth the little effort of putting them together. Not to mention clean up because that is pretty much a snap, Enjoy!


1 lb. ground beef
1 onion, finely chopped
1 tsp. salt
½ tsp. black pepper
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 can (14 ½ oz) diced tomatoes with green peppers, celery and onions, undrained
1 ¼ cups elbow macaroni (uncooked)
1 ½ cup shredded sharp Cheddar cheese


Brown meat and onion in large skillet, then drain. Add undrained tomatoes, salt, pepper, garlic powder and one cup of water. Bring to a boil. Stir in uncooked macaroni, cover and simmer for 10 to 15 minutes or until macaroni is cooked and liquid is absorbed. Remove from heat and stir in cheese until melted.


  • Ground turkey can be substituted for beef

  • 1 tsp. dried red pepper flakes can be added if you prefer a little heat
