1-1/2 lb ground beef/chuck/sirloin, whatever
Cook with a little olive oil, drain.
Saute till tender:
1/2 onion, chopped
1 carrot, sliced
1 bell pepper, chopped
1 small eggplant cubed (or 1/2 of large one)
Olive oil to cook
Add 2-3 cloves garlic, minced (you be the judge)
1 can petite diced tomatoes
1 can tomato sauce
2 cups beef broth
1 cup elbow macaroni
Add back the drained meat and bring to a boil as you add spices:
Cumin (careful, stuff strong)
Fresh ground black pepper
When it boils, cover and simmer, stirring occasionally till macaroni is tender. Add a touch more broth or water if it’s too dry.
Serve with grated cheddar and some rustic bread. Yum! And fairly healthy. Shhh.
