I chose to make the Family Favorite Chili Mac recipe from the Ragú® website. This is a super easy recipe and can be easily modified to fit your needs. Using what we had on hand meant substituting beef for a meat-free sausage crumble from our freezer which worked great!
- 1 lb. lean ground beef- I used 1lb. meat-less sausage crumbles.
- 1 jar (1 lb. 8 oz.) Ragu® Traditional Sauce
- 1 1/2 Tbsp. chili powder
- 8 ounces elbow macaroni, cooked and drained
Cook ground beef in large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, until done.
Stir in Sauce and chili powder. Bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to low and simmer covered 10 minutes.
Stir in macaroni and heat through. Serve, if desired, with sour cream and shredded cheddar cheese.
By not using beef in the recipe it cut the cook time down significantly. We had some sweet peppers left in our fridge so I sliced them up to eat on the side. This simple meal came together fast and tasted great! What makes our meal time Saucesome for me, is seeing my whole family enjoying the same meal, at our table, and with no complaints!
