Have the passion of cooking, she's sharing you the goodness and deliciousness recipes from her KUSINA to your KUSINA! Or from my Kitchen to your Kitchen that will cost less yet very comforting that the entire family would enjoy! It's all about GOOD FOOD and more!!!

I adapted this recipe from my aunt Jhey Lo, was browsing on her blog and bumped into very inviting dish and so i thought i would cook that for lunch. I used her recipe but the pasta i added was macaroni shells instead of elbow macaroni and i added some Parmesan cheese. Everyone was delighted and loved it and so am I! The grandma was her first time and she enjoyed every bites! I'll definitely make some more of the soup again and let other members of the families taste it!

You need:

A box of macaroni pasta (elbow or shells)
1lbs ground beef
1 beef bouillon
1 med can spaghetti sauce
1 can tomato chunks or 2 fresh tomato sliced
salt and pepper to taste
chopped onion med size
1-2 cups water
Parmesan cheese
sour cream (optional)

Boiled pasta shells until al dente. In a deep skillet, brown ground beef and drain excess oil. Add onion and tomato chunks, stir and add salt and pepper to taste. Pour the spaghetti sauce and 1 cup water then simmer for 5 minutes covered. Stir occasionally, add the pasta into the mixture, continue stirring and add a cup or so of pasta water onto, simmer until everything is tender and sauce starts to thicken. Serve hot with sprinkle of Parmesan or it is optional you garnish it with sour cream on top.

Enjoy cooking!
