- 1 pound(s) ground beef
- 1 16 oz. can tomatoes (whole or crushed)
- 1 8 oz. can tomato sauce
- 1 4 oz. can tomato paste
- 1 small sweet onion
- 1 clove garlic
- Italian parsley
- rosemary (or dried Italian seasoning)
- 1 pound(s) box elbow pasta
Cook ground beef and onion in a dutch oven or deep frying pan. Add garlic, spices and tomatoes, sauce and paste when meat is cooked through. In a separate pot, cook pasta according to directions. Combine all ingredients into one pot, cook until hot. Serve with bread and a simple salad.
Do ahead tip: I make my sauce at home, cook the meat, and transport that in a container in my cooler. Then, after I boil the macaroni and drain, I combine the meat sauce and cook until hot.
