1 pound lean ground beef

1 small onion, finely chopped

1 teaspoon paprika

1 teaspoon dried parsley

1 teaspoon garlic powder

pinch to 1/2 teaspoon cayenne powder

salt and pepper to taste

1 1/2 cups milk

1 1/2 cups beef broth

2 cups uncooked macaroni

1 (8 oz) can tomato sauce

2 cups shredded cheddar cheese


Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Brown the ground beef, onion, paprika, parsley, garlic powder, cayenne powder, salt and pepper. If using a ground beef with a higher fat content add in the seasonings after draining the grease.

Stir in the milk, broth, macaroni and tomato sauce. Bring to a boil, cover and reduce heat to a simmer. Cook for 10-12 minutes or until pasta is tender. Stir occasionally to prevent sticking.

Stir in cheddar cheese until melted.
