1. In a 2-4 quart casserole, combine ground beef, onion, celery and garlic. Microwave on High for 5 to 6 minutes or until beef is no longer pink, stirring once. Drain.
2. Add the remaining ingredients, except macaroni. Stir to blend ingredients. Cover. Microwave on power level 8 for 14 to 16 minutes (stirring once), until celery is tender and the flavors have blended.
3. Stir in macaroni (already cooked and drained). Re-cover. Microwave on power level 8 for 2 to 3 minutes or until heated through.
There were no microwaves when my Mom made this, so she did it on the stove top. She never gave us the recipe and I have discovered it through trial and error. You never forget the taste! I started with a recipe in a J.C. Penney microwave cookbook and have adjusted the ingredients over time. If anyone is home when you are cooking, you will have company in the kitchen! Serve with Caesar Salad, oven baked, garlic butter French bread and red wine. Microwave temperatures vary, so keep checking to see if these power levels work for you.
