Hamburger Macaroni

Hamburger Macaroni
from Simply Recipes

INGREDIENTS:
1 pound ground beef
1 yellow onion, chopped (or mixed chopped green onion greens and yellow onion)
Olive oil
1/2 teaspoon Vegesal or other seasoned salt
Dash crushed red pepper
1/2 teaspoon celery seed
1 large can (28 oz) of diced tomatoes
2 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1/4 cup chopped parsley
2 cups uncooked macaroni

DIRECTIONS:
1. Get a large pot of hot water heating and begin cooking the macaroni as per the directions on the macaroni package.
2. In a skillet, brown the ground beef in a tablespoon of olive oil on high heat. Stir only infrequently so that the ground beef has an opportunity to brown.
3. In a large skillet, sauté chopped onion with a tablespoon of olive oil on medium high heat. Add the ground beef and lower the heat to medium. Add a dash of crushed red pepper. Add Vegesal or other seasoned salt. Add celery seed. Add canned tomatoes. Add Worcestershire sauce. Bring to a simmer and let simmer for 5 minutes.
4. Mix in the drained and cooked macaroni and parsley. Simmer for another 5 minutes.

Serves 4.
*This recipe was so easy and had such great flavor. I cut this recipe in half for just the two of us and it was plenty, with leftovers.
