This is a nice hearty meal with a simple homemade sauce and lots of cheese.

1 1/2 lb
ground beef
3 can(s)
tomato sauce 28 oz cans
1 can(s)
tomato paste
1 Tbsp
italian seasoning
1/2 Tbsp
garlic powder
1/2 Tbsp
onion powder
1 tsp
garlic salt
2 Tbsp
1 box
large elbow macaroni (not large box actual large noodles) or other favorite pasta
3 c
cheddar cheese, shredded
crushed plain potato chips (optional)


1Brown and drain ground beef in a large sauce pan. Add beef back to pan and the rest of the sauce ingredients. Bring to boil then lower heat and simmer for at least one hour. While sauce is cooking bring a pot of water to boil and cook noodles al dente right before sauce is done. Drain noodles and add sauce to noodles until it's the consistency you want. I make mine pretty saucy since baking dries it out a bit.
2Assemble casserole. Layer of pasta. Then half your cheese. Then another layer of pasta. Then add the rest of your cheese. Sometimes I add crushed up potato chips to the top for a little crunch. Bake at 350 for about 40 minutes. I like my cheese nice and browned and bubbly.
