My parents worked with a couple from New York when I was a preschooler named Mike and Eleanor Cironi. They introduced us to this recipe and tacos...we were eating them long before there was a taco place anywhere around. This is one of my family's favorite ways to use ground beef and since we have raised cattle for years, we know a lot of them!

How to Make Spunguneon


  • 1Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray baking dish with Crisco or Pam. An 8x8 for the smaller amounts, 9x13 for the larger.
  • 2Brown ground beef and onion in a skillet. Stir so it isn't in large chunks.
  • 3While browning ground beef, cook elbow macaroni as instructed on package using shortest cooking time.
  • 4When macaroni is done and beef is browned, mix all the ingredients together in a heat proof bowl or the pan you cooked the macaroni in, then put in the baking dish. Some people like to top it with cheese, but we never do.
