Since I just put on Lucas' Aunt Selma's mondel bread, I think it's only fitting that I now put on "macaroni mess", one of Lucas' favorite meals. Lucas is such a "foodie" but he loves this stuff! It reheats really well too. Think of a "healthier" less greasy form of hamburger helper.
Make a box of macaroni, drain.
Brown a pound of beef, drain the grease.
Open a "regular" size can of tomato sauce
Open a "regular" size can of tomato chunks or cubes or dices
Grate about two-three handfuls of cheddar cheese
Into a 9x13, dump the macaroni, the ground beef, all of the tomato cubes, and about 75% of the sauce (you could use it all, but we don't like it too saucy, but without it, it's too dry for my taste)
Add the cheese and stir all together.
Place in a 350 oven for about 30 minutes, or until hot.
Selma puts mushrooms in hers... I prefer to omit the fungus.
