Growing up, this was the ultimate comfort food in my mother’s kitchen. Simple to make dinner that warmed the soul and the belly.
1 pound of ground hamburger or pork, browned
2 C. elbow noodles
1 large can diced tomatoes
Salt & pepper
Red pepper flakes (optional)
Hot sauce (optional)
Brown burger in pan with minced garlic and chopped onions. Boil water and cook noodles per instructions. Drain and add all other ingredients. I like to add a few dashes of red pepper flakes and hot sauce for flavor but that is totally optional. Once heated through, serve plain or topped with some shredded cheddar cheese.
