Beefaroni Stuffed Pepper

The other night with a bunch of peppers about to go south I thought I would make stuffed peppers, but no chopped meat defrosted and no left over rice or tomatoes.  What to do?

Well in the closet for emergency fare, for our smallest member, were a few cans of Beefaroni.  I thought why not!  

Not exactly gourmet but quick and easy and actually quite tasty.

Ingredients for Beefaroni Stuffed Peppers
  1. Peppers medium to large any color that suits you
  2. Beefaroni small can will do 2-3 medium peppers
  3. Parmesan and sour cream for garnish
Directions for Beefaroni Stuffed Peppers

Preheat oven to 350º

Cut the tops off the peppers and seed them.  If they do not stand upright by themselves pair a little bit off the bottoms to level them.

Open the Beefaroni and stir the can to distribute the juice that  is on the top, then spoon into the hollowed out peppers until they are full.

Stand the peppers in a baking dish and bake for 60 minutes until the peppers are soft and the pasta is hot.  Carefully spoon out the peppers to a plate and garnish and serve.

Macaroni and Beef

I think macaroni and beef is more American than apple pie.  Generations have been raised on the simple and inexpensive concept of ground beef and elbow macaroni.  It’s healthy and filling and on a per serving basis relatively cheap.

There are no rules, feel free to experiment with different spices and herbs to find your own personalized recipe.  The same goes for the cooking method. mix the cheese in and do it all in one pot or layer the macaroni in a baking dish cover with cheese and bake, or do both it’s up to you.  Here’s my version I like to do a one pot meal (doing it all in one pot makes clean up easy),but if you like bake it.

Ingredients for Macaroni and Beef

  1. 1 1/2 -2 pounds of lean ground beef
  2. 1 pound grated cheddar cheese ÷ 2
  3. 1 pound elbow macaroni cooked al dente
  4. 2 -14 oz cans diced tomatoes
  5. 1 cup ketchup
  6. 1 medium onion diced
  7. 1 clove garlic minced
  8. 1 tsp allspice
  9. 2 tsp crushed rosemary
  10. 1 tsp cumin
  11. 1 tsp sage
  12. 2 Tbs Worcestershire sauce
  13. Salt and pepper to taste
  14. 2 -3 Tbs canola oil

Directions for Macaroni and Beef

In a large pot cook the elbow macaroni.  Once cooked empty, into a colander and set aside.

Add the canola oil to the pot, let it get hot the add  the ground beef,onions, garlic , allspice,rosemary, cumin, and sage and brown the beef .  When the beef has browned add the canned tomatoes,ketchup,and Worcestershire sauce.  Check seasoning and adjust with salt and pepper.  Put the cooked macaroni in and stir to combine.  Now add half the cheese and mix completely.

You can now serve with a sprinkle of the remaining cheese on top of each portion or put into a 9 X 13 baking pan layer the cheese on top and bake for 30 minutes at 350° or until the mixture is hot and the cheese is melted.
