Hamburger, Cheddar and Macaroni Toss

Ready in 45 minutes

This is a true one-pot family favorite that is also a good source of fiber and calcium. Prepare the beef mixture in the same pan used to cook the pasta.

"Easy to make and tastes pretty good. Will definitely make again. Except I'll probably add a little more chili powder!!!"
