Cheesy Chili Mac or Goulash

Yum

Whatever you call this, and everyone has a name for it, this is all-time good comfort food!  I can remember making this for our kids, and now it's been "kicked up" a bit for a more "adult" taste.


RECIPE
Ingredients
1 lb. hamburger
1 (14.5 oz) can tomato sauce
2-4 tsp chili powder (or to taste)
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp course-ground black pepper
1 (14.5 oz) can petite diced tomatoes (drained)
1/2 cup medium salsa
1/2-1 cup shredded Mexican cheese blend
1-2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
2 cups pasta, cooked according to package instructions (elbow macaroni or sea shells work best)

Method
Preheat oven to 350.

Brown ground beef in pan; drain.  Add all remaining ingredients, except pasta and shredded cheddar cheese; stir to blend.

Add cooked pasta and stir until blended.

Pour into prepared 13 x 9-inch pan (sprayed with cooking spray).  Top with shredded cheddar cheese and bake approx. 30 minutes or until lightly browned and bubbly.  Serve immediately.
