11-02-07, 01:59 PM
1 Onion
chopped mushrooms
Garlic Salt
Tony's Cajun Seasoning(optional)
1lb ground beef
elbow macaroni
16 slices of cheese(or more depending on how daring you are)
1 can Tomato Puree
1 bag of chilli mix

To make the Chilli
Step 1: Sautee Onions, garlic, and mushrooms
Step 2: Brown ground beef adding salt, pepper, garlic salt and cajun
seasoning(again up to u)
Step 3: Add tomato puree & oregeno and cook for (oh I'd say bout 40
minutes or until onions cooked lol)

For the Macaroni part

Step 4: When meat sauce is half way cooked, boil a big pot of water and add
salt(kinda a duh step but if ya never cooked before, just a lil f.y.i)
Step 5: Add your Elbows(not literally mind you, I mean the macaroni..wah
wah wah:))
Step 6: Cook mac until HALF WAY done(otherwise you'll be able to
drink the mac more than eat it when it's done)

Ok, chilli is done and mac is half done


Step 7: Preheat oven to 350
Step 8: Drain the mac(you mac-daddy,mommy you)into a strainer
Step 9: Pour half the chilli into a big casserole dish and add
half the mac(why, you ask? Well read on, silly)
Step 10: Add 8 slices of cheese on top of mac/chilli
step 11: Add the other half of Chilli/Mac and repeat with 8 slices of cheese.

Chilli might be kinda soupish like, but that's ok we aint done yet..We're almost done, good, I can quit typing soon.:D

Step 12: Add your chilli/mac to the oven and cook until chilli/mac is nice and
steady, or until cheese is brownish, (if it's blackish, you've spent
too long in the chit chat section of the forums:p)

OK FINALLY WE GOT R DUN!!! Since it is a big dish, you got lunch and dinner for a week, less than a week, go on a diet, sheesh! :p
