My Mother used to make this easy recipe and I still love it. It's great for busy week nights.
Cook macaroni according to package directions. Drain and keep warm.
Cook ground beef with onion in a 6-quart saucepan or Dutch oven over medium-high heat for 4 to 6 minutes or until crumbly and no longer pink. Drain, if needed. Stir in chili powder and crushed red pepper (if using). Add tomatoes and beans; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low; simmer for 20 minutes. Add cooked macaroni; cook for 5 minutes.
Season with salt and pepper to taste.
This freezes well and makes excellent leftovers -- if there is any left.
