Brandon's grandma gave me this recipe at my wedding shower. I love grandma recipes because they are usually simple, easy, and delicious. I was A-M-A-Z-E-D when Anna gobbled it up (meat and all) so I knew it was something I had to take out and make immediately (and often)! I especially love this because you can throw leftover ingredients into it. I usually dethaw leftover noodles from previous meals. Add a little green pepper if you are feeling spicy or a can of crushed tomatoes!
1lb. hamburger (or ground turkey)
1/2 chopped small onion
2 cups cooked macaroni
1 jar spaghetti sauce
1 pkg. shredded cheese
1 tsp. oregano
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper
1/2 tsp. garlic salt
1/2 tsp. onion salt
1/2 cup puree carrot, cauliflower, squash (for the kid that doesn't eat vegetables)
Brown meat and onion in skillet. Season with last five ingredients. Combine meat, macaroni and sauce. Put half of mixture in a baking dish, then add half of cheese, repeat with sauce. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes or until cheese looks melted.
