  • Summary

    When I was a child, my family used to eat this at least once a week due to the fact that it is inexpensive and a little goes a long way. We also added fresh herbs or sometimes whole kernel corn. Its even better the next day and it freezes well.

    Ingredients

    • 1 large onion, chopped
    • 2 garlic cloves, minced
    • 1 tablespoon olive oil
    • 1 lb ground beef, browned and drained
    • 2 (16 ounce) cans stewed tomatoes
    • 1 (16 ounce) can water
    • 8 ounces elbow macaroni, uncooked
    • salt, to taste
    • pepper, to taste
