Peppers, Beef & Macaroni
45 mins (prep 30, cooking 15)

4-6 servings
After a trip to the farmer's market, I was in love with the idea of red and orange peppers for 50 cents. At the grocery store, these cost about $2. So, we loaded up on red, orange and green peppers. But what to do with them? I wanted to make a sort of American goulash - the beef and macaroni in spaghetti sauce. But what if I added peppers? Would that make it better - or worse? I'm happy to say it is better! This is not super flashy, out-of-this-world gourmet or spicy. It's kid friendly. It's quick and easy. It's also very healthy with lean ground beef. Prep time includes boiling the water and chopping the peppers while lecturing two small children, so your time may vary. I hope you enjoy this as much as my children and I did! I can't wait for hubby to eat some when he gets home.
