Another glorious day Freezer Recipe!

I woke up  not feeling well today so it looks like my posting won't be very long.  But this recipe was to die for and cheap and could feed a crowd!

Cheesy Hamburger Mac Bake
2 jars of Spagetti Sauce
2 pounds of lean Hamburger
1 1/2 box of Mac ( I used walmart brand)
2 Pkg . Sharp Cheddar Cheese Shreaded
2 Jars of Spagetti Sauce
Garlic powder Salt and pepper to taste
2 green yellow or red peppers chopped and diced
2 large onions chopped and diced
3 T. butter melted
2 cans fire roasted tomatoes ALDIs brand

 Preheat oven for 350 .
Heat large skillet with butter melt and add peppers seasonings and onion saute till soft.  In large pan heat up salted water enough to cook the mac n.  Leave and let it come to a boil.  Next unwrap your beef could use turkey too.  I used beef though.  Cook meat until no longer pink drain the grease.  Add the onion pepper  mixture stir.  Boil the mac for 5 minutes you still want it hard.  The reason is you will put this into the oven and you don't want to over cook the noodles.  Drain water off mac add the meat and the tomatoes and the sauce in the pan you cooked the mac in.  Spray two dishes I used two cake pans and it worked well and it all fit in the pan.  Spray these dishes with cooking spray as you want to make cleanup easy.  Pour mixture in the pans
and top with shredded cheese you can cook both and eat one now or you can freeze the other one if you want.  This would make good for potluck or freezer cooking.  Place in oven and cook for 15-20 minutes.  Watch your oven if it cooks fast you don't want to burn the cheese.  Let sit for a few minutes than cut and serve it fed. 5 people two giant servings.  For one dish.  For two you could bake for a crowd.  It's delicious on these cold fall nights and cheap too.  Hope you enjoyed.  It was raved about that night and the following night.  If you try it feel free to tell me what you think .  Have a blessed Day.
