In response to a request, here's my ACS recipe.
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
1 Lb Elbow Macaroni
Brown the beef in a 5.5-quart sauté pan over medium high heat.
Add the onion, pepper and garlic and sauté until softened.
Add the paste and sauté for an additional 3 minutes, stirring frequently.
Add the tomato to the sautéed meat 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.
