  • 1 Onion (chopped)
  • 1/2 Bell pepper (chopped)
  • 1 lb Ground beef
  • 16 oz Elbow Macaroni
  • 28 oz Crushed tomato
  • 15 oz Tomato sauce
  • 1/2 tbsp Italian seasoning
  • 1 tsp Olive oil
  • 1 tsp Black pepper
  • 1 tsp Salt


  • Prep your veggies by washing your bell pepper, and then chopping your onions and bell pepper into small pieces
  • Preheat your frypan and when hot add the oil
  • Once the oil is good and hot go ahead and add your ground beef. Make sure to brown the beef to get that great flavor. Remove the ground beef when cooked through.
  • Now, get the water boiling for the elbow macaroni. Once the water is boiling add your macaroni and cook until al dente. Strain the water out of the macaroni.
    Add a little bit of oil to the macaroni elbows to make sure they dont stick.
  • In the same frying pan go ahead and saute the onions and peppers. Add more oil if needed.
    After the onions are translucent go ahead and add the sauce, salt, Italian seasoning and ground beef to the pan. Bring to a boil.
    After it gets to a boil turn it down to a simmer.
  • Now add it all together. Pour the sauce over the cooked elbows and mix it all together.
