I had planned to make a cheeseburger, to use up a 6 ounce portion of ground sirloin. When I opened the refrigerator door I spied half of a green pepper that needed to be used up and 3 dilapidated looking baby bella mushrooms. I rummaged around a little more and came up with the ingredients to make a small batch of Andy's ACS.
Delicious, thanks Andy!!!

Andy's AMERICAN CHOP SUEY
1 Lb Ground Beef
1 Ea Onion
1 Ea Green Pepper
2 Cl Garlic
3 Tb Tomato Paste
28 Oz Canned Tomato
½ Lb Elbow Macaroni
Brown the beef in a sauté pan over medium high heat. Remove it from the pan. Pour off all but two tablespoons of fat.
Sauté the onion, pepper and garlic in the remaining fat until softened.
Add the paste and sauté for an additional 3 minutes.
Add the tomato and the meat to the sautéed vegetables. Simmer for 15-20 minutes.
Prepare the pasta according to package directions.
When the pasta is cooked, drain off the water and mix the pasta with the vegetable and meat mixture. Cook together for 2-3 minutes to allow the flavor of the sauce to cook into the pasta.
Serve with grated cheese.
