It had been quite a while since the last time I made this poverty meal, as they call it. I guess there are so many delicious recipes out there these days, that you sometimes end up forgetting about your old favorites!
However, recently I started “an experiment” to see how much money I could save, paying attention to my meal options. So we’ve been having this quite often lately, and it’s always just as delicious! And even if you’re not on a budget, you’re still going to want to make this recipe. It’s just too good not to! Feel free to use ground turkey or chicken instead of beef, if you’d like.
1 yellow onion, chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 Tbsp Bertolli olive oil
1 lb ground beef, browned and drained
2 (16 oz) cans stewed tomatoes
1 (16 oz) can water
8 oz elbow macaroni, uncooked
salt and pepper to taste
parmesan cheese (optional)
Saute the garlic and onion in olive oil until translucent.
Brown the meat and drain.
Add the browned meat, tomatoes, water, raw macaroni, salt and pepper to the onion and garlic mixture.
Cook this mixture for about 15-20 minutes or until macaroni is tender.
Top with Parmesan cheese.

Quick tip: I like to add a little chili powder and paprika!
