Easy Cheeseburger Macaroni
One of my family's favorite meals is Cheeseburger Macaroni. This is a one-pot meal and is very simple to make. I love one-pot meals...it makes cleanup so much easier! Love them! This is a great week night meal...just add a side salad and you have a warm, hearty meal.
Makes 4-6 servings
1 lb. lean ground beef (I use extra lean ground turkey)
1/2 c. chopped onion
1 jar (28oz.) pasta sauce, your choice
1 1/2 c. uncooked pasta (I used ziti here)
1 c. shredded Cheddar cheese (I used 3-cheese blend here)
Brown meat and onion over medium-high heat in large skillet; drain. Season with salt and pepper, if desired. Add pasta sauce and 1 cup water; bring to boil. Stir in uncooked pasta. Cover and simmer 10-15 minutes or until pasta is tender. Stir in cheese. Garnish with sliced green onions, if desired.
