Difficulty: Easy - for beginners
2 lbs lean ground beef
2 medium yellow onions, chopped
3 cloves garlic, chopped
3 cups water
2 (15 oz) cans tomato sauce
2 (15 oz) cans diced tomatoes
2 tablespoons Italian seasoning (I didn't use this)
3 bay leaves (I didn't use this either)
3 tbsp soy sauce
1 tbsp Paula Deen's House Seasoning (Again, didn't use this in mine)
1 tbsp salt
2 cups elbow macaroni (uncooked)
*I added garlic powder, seasoning salt, and a little pepper to mine
In large pot, cook ground beef over medium heat until browned, spoon off any extra grease.
Add onion and garlic, saute until transparent.
Add 3 cups of water, tomato sauce, diced tomatoes, all seasonings, soy sauce, and bay leaves (if you choose to use them). Allow to simmer for 15-20 minutes.
Add macaroni and allow to simmer an additional 20 minutes or until tender. Remove bay leaves before serving.
