2cups(8 ounces) elbow macaroni (gluten-free if desired) (uncooked)
1poundlean ground beef
1green bell pepper, chopped
2cans(10-3/4 ounces each) tomato soup
2cans(14-ounces each) diced tomatoes
Salt and pepper to taste
Cook macaroni according to package directions; drain.
Meanwhile heat oil in a large skillet, or dutch oven, over medium heat. Stir the ground beef, onion, and pepper into the skillet, breaking up the beef into small pieces. Season with salt and pepper.
Cook, stirring often, until the beef is no longer pink and the onion and pepper are soft (5-8 minutes).
Stir in the tomatoes, tomato soup, cinnamon, and sugar. Simmer until heated thoroughly.
Stir in the drained macaroni and combine well. (Alternatively, if your skillet isn't quite big enough, stir everything together in the pasta pan.) Season with salt and pepper to taste.
I like to make this old-fashioned Goulash saucy. If you don't, use one can of diced tomatoes instead of two.And of course, you don't have to use elbow macaroni. Any small to medium pasta shape will work. The last time I made it I used gluten-free brown rice rotini.For a spicy southwest variation add 1 cup of drained corn and 1-2 tablespoons chili powder when adding the tomatoes.9*SmartPoints (Green plan)9*SmartPoints (Blue plan)5*SmartPoints (Purple plan) (with whole grain macaroni)9*PointsPlus (Old plan)
