This is a simple dish with inexpensive ingredients. I was able to get these elbow noodles 2/$1 at my local grocery outlet but brands like DeBoles Gluten Free Elbow Corn Pasta, 12 Ounce (Pack of 12) works perfect and the price on amazon is very reasonable. I like to throw carrots in there for a healthy crunch. The kids like this because it is delicious like spaghetti but in a different form to switch it up. I call it “Venom Soup” (Venom, the nasty looking Marvel guy that my Son is obsessed with). I suppose it makes it more enticing that way and he gets more excited. Call it whatever you please to work for you.
I suppose it is the macaroni noodles that make it a little more exciting. In the end I am just happy that my kids ate carrots without a complaint.
My kids like bread with this. I like to have an Udi’s loaf to go with it or just some buttered toast with granulated garlic and parsley to feel like an easy garlic toast.
This is a quick weeknight dinner that is filling and satisfying. Both of my kids like it and I hope you do too.
2 Cups GF Macaroni (I’ve been buying it at my local Grocery Outlet for $1 or less a bag)
16 oz. can of Diced Tomatoes
16 oz. Tomato Sauce
3 Cups Water or Broth
1 TBSP. Italian dried seasonings
2 Carrots diced
1 tsp. Salt
1/2 tsp. Pepper
1/2 tsp. Granulated Garlic
Heat the oil in a pitot. Add the onion, garlic, bell pepper, and carrots. Saute for a few minutes until the veggies are slightly tender and then add your meat. Brown the meat, then add the tomatoes, seasonings, water, tomato sauce, and macaroni. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer for about 25 minutes until noodles are tender. Enjoy!
