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.

How to Make Not My Mother's American Chop Suey

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.
