Thursday's Recipe Swap Meet: Hamburger Macaroni Stuff (Clever Name, Huh?)


OK... we know you have all these recipes that you love to make. You got them from your mother, your grandmother, a magazine, or maybe you made it up, perhaps you don't even remember where the recipe came from. Well, how about sharing them with all of us? We are going to share ours with you every Thursday!

My good friend and (according to her husband) excellent cook, Dolly over at XmasDolly and I are now doing a recipe swap; we want to share ours with you and wold LOVE to get some of your favorites as well... So welcome to Thursday's Recipe Swap Meet, here is all you have to do:


Post a recipe on your blog, sign the linky on either blog (they will be linked), grab our new button - isn't she cute - hubby says she looks like me... TeeHee? (above, on my sidebar and on my Co-Chef Dolly's blog) and check out the recipes. Don't forget that each week you actually will be getting at least TWO for the price of ONE because both Dolly and I will post a recipe on each of our blogs. How simple is that???

So if you're stumped for something to make for dinner, come on over to our blogs and see if one of our recipes might just be the one.... Maybe you'll like my:

Hamburger Macaroni Stuff ~ I know you LOVE the name, I came up with it all by myself. It's gonna be FAMOUS!! :)

Ingredients Needed:

1 lb. lean ground beef (can use ground turkey)
Large can diced tomatoes
Can of ripe olives (I prefer large size)
Several cloves of garlic
1/2 - 1 stick of butter
Red wine (or beef broth)
1 lb. elbow macaroni cooked per pkg. directions
Brown ground beef (we use only 7% fat because of Bill's health) in appox. 2 Tbl. EVOO

Add garlic to browned beef ~ I like to grate it in because you get all the good flavor but not huge chunks of garlic.

Drain the tomatoes then add them to the beef mixture, slice olive in half and add them to the beef mixture also; add salt and pepper and wine to taste.


Next add your butter and mix everything together and cover to let the flavor simmer together.
Once pasta is done and flavors have all mixed together stir everything together and serve in a bowl with your favorite grated or shredded cheese.... mmmmmmm!!
I usually make a really big batch so it lasts a couple of days for leftovers.... we also have to share with the puppies. I swear, if I didn't know better, I would think they were all part Italian.
So now all you have to do is sign our linky so we all can find your recipes. You check out all ours and we will check out all yours. If you don't want to write it all down and you know of one on line just post a link to it on your blog or leave it in a comment if you prefer!

For more recipes, head on over to Ms.BiBi at Daily Organized Chaos.

Let's get cooking..... Bon Appetit!
