This recipe comes from Flossie Roberson, my aunt from North Carolina. It's been a staple in our family for forever. Feel free to leave out the green pepper and no one will really miss it. 1 lb. hamburger 1 onion, chopped 1/4 cup green pepper (optional) 1 tsp chili powder garlic powder (to taste) salt and pepper (to taste) 1 can tomato sauce 1 #2 can of tomatoes 1 cup elbow macaroni

Brown hamburger, onion and green pepper. Drain off any grease. Add chili powder, garlic powder, salt and pepper. Blend tomato sauce and tomatoes to remove chunks. Add tomato mixture to hamburger and simmer on low heat. Boil and drain macaroni, thenadd to burger and tomatoes. Simmer an additional 15-20 minutes.
