Somehow Hubby had never eaten American Chop Suey in his life. It was a staple for many of us growing up, so I decided that Hubby simply had to be introduced to this easy to make, and also easy to eat, comfort food!
Maribeth’s American Chop Suey
- 1 pound of hamburger
- 1/2 cup of green pepper
- 1/2 cup red pepper
- 3 garlic cloves minced.
- 1 jar of your favorite tomato sauce.
- 1 tsp Oregano
- 1 tsp Basil
- 12 ounces of elbow macaroni cooked (more or less. See how it is when you stir it in to the tomato mixture. You want it to be nice and moist, so you may not use all the elbow noodles.
Cooked chopped onion, green and red peppers in a little olive oil. Once that is softened, add the hamburger. Cook until the hamburger is no longer pink and all broken up. Mince the garlic and add to this in the pot. Add the seasoning, and the tomato sauce. Cook for a few minutes on medium heat. Add the cooked macaroni, and stir well. Place in greased casserole dish. Bake covered for 30 minutes at 350* (F). Take out, sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and serve. Yum.
Note: You can add more seasoning, salt or pepper to the sauce mixture. I always tell people to taste it to make sure it is to your liking.
