Not a lot refinement here and probably similar to everyone elses. What makes this different for me. I remember my dear mother just cooking macaroni cooking off hamburg and opening cans and throwing it all together. With a few differences in ingredients and cooking method. I have come up with a lot more flavor.

Prep:

30 Min

Ingredients

2 can(s)
one 32 oz and one 15 oz. stewed tomatos.
1 can(s)
15 oz bean sprouts
1/2 box
or 8 oz elbow macaroni
2 clove
minced garlic
1 lb
hamburger

Directions Step-By-Step

1
In a large saute pan brown hamburger and drain off fat if necessary. And in minced garlic and saute for several min (1st little refinement)
2
Add Stewed tomatos, please use STEWED NOT canned Whole. Stewed have onion and pepper added for much more flavor! Give them a little chop in the pan to cut them in half
3
Add bean sprouts salt and pepper and simmer on low for 15 to 20 minutes (the simmer of this is the other refinement. simple but makes a big difference in flavor)
4
While tomato mix is simmering bring pasta water to a boil cook to directions on box drain and add in simmered tomato mixture to drained pasta.
5
To make it like mom's my family has to have a slice of bread spread with mayo to go with it. Odd....but works.
