All-American Skillet Goulash from Mr. Food
1/2 pound elbow macaroni
1 1/2 pounds ground beef
1/2 medium-sized green bell pepper, chopped
1 small onion, chopped
1 (28-ounce) jar spaghetti sauce
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1 cup (4 ounces) shredded Cheddar cheese

Directions:  Cook macaroni according to package directions; drain and cover to keep warm.

In a large skillet, brown the ground beef, bell pepper, and onion over high heat for 6 to 8 minutes, or until no pink remains in the beef, stirring frequently. Drain off excess liquid.

Add macaroni, spaghetti sauce, garlic powder, salt, and black pepper; mix well. Reduce heat to medium-low and let simmer 5 to 7 minutes, or until heated through. Sprinkle with cheese and simmer 1 to 2 minutes, or until cheese is melted; serve.

Here's what you'll need:

Put some water on to boil.

Chop up an onion and a green pepper.

Put the macaroni in and cook according to directions.

Put the ground beef on to brown along with the onion and green pepper.

Once the macaroni is cooked, drain it and add it to the ground beef.

Add in the spaghetti sauce, garlic powder, salt, and pepper.

Mix it altogether and let it simmer for a couple of minutes.

Sprinkle cheese on top.

Here's what you'll end up with:
Our Thoughts:
This was a very simple and easy dish.  It was very quick to make and I had all of the ingredients on hand.

It reminded me a lot of a Hamburger Helper meal and it would be a great alternative to HH especially if you don't want to use processed white noodles.  I used whole grain.  Kanin really liked it a lot and he is taking it to school tomorrow.

Hope you enjoy!

I think this is one of the most unfortunately named dishes around! It is good tasting, it just needed a better public relations firm, ha ha.
