Something to use up my macaroni

Since the Superbowl, I've had about a 1/2 lb. of macaroni noodles sitting around, unused. The other day I decided to search for a recipe to use them up. Something other than mac and cheese. And something other than just boiling them and putting a sauce on top.

Here's the recipe that inspired my creation: Dunbar Macaroni with Beef.

I revised it a bit, mainly to use ground beef, since I didnt want to wait an hour for it become tender. Here's what I did:

- cooked the noodles in boiling water.
-in a pot i ground the beef and then added the onions.
-i then added the beef broth, tomato, etc and let it simmer for a bit.
-i mixed them all together in the caserole dish, put the breadcrumbs and cheese on top
-baked it for 25 mins.

SUPER EASY. Very cheap. Fed a lot of people easily. It fed me, my 2 rooomates, and then I had leftovers good for 2 lunches. Not bad for a total cost of under $10.
