Having a baby definitely makes you need to think of ways to make quick and easy dishes. There usually doesn't seem to be enough hours in a day. Most of the time is spent feeding, cleaning bottles, pumping and laundry so to find time to cook is really a juggling act. This would be one of the dishes that I just threw together with the ingredients I had at home. I would have loved to include some mushrooms though.
½ lb. Macaroni
1 lb. Ground Beef
1 Onion (minced)
1 tsp. Thyme
1 tsp. Rosemary
1 tsp. Salt
1 tsp. Pepper
1/4 Cup Ketchup
2 tbsp. Mustard
1 cup grated Cheddar Cheese
1 tsp. Butter
Cook and drain the macaroni according to directions on the package.
Heat up pan and add butter. Add minced onions and saute until softened.
Add ground beef to the pan. When the meat is almost cooked, add the thyme, rosemary, ketchup, mustard, salt and pepper.
Once the ground beef is cooked and everything is incorporated, add the grated cheddar cheese. Allow to melt and blend together.
Add the macaroni to the pan and mix everything together. Taste and adjust as necessary, then serve!
