Baked Macaroni for New Year's Eve

I got an idea from a website forum on what to cook for New Year's eve and it was superb with a little alterations on the ingredients and procedure since were in a tight budget and we prefer the "not-so-sweet" style of pasta. I was so happy that it turned out good even though it was my first time to make it. Here it is:

Bake Macaroni ala Madz

1 k elbow macaroni
1/2 k ground beef
1 big pack of pasta sauce ( i used Hunt's Parmesan and cheese)
salt and pepper to taste
1 pack Cream of mushroom (i used knorr product. follow the directions at the back)
grated cheese (i used eden quick melt)

*****Make sure that you preheat your oven


1. Heat your pan. Saute your ground beef until it is slightly cooked. Add salt and pepper to taste. Mix in onion and garlic and saute it until beef in gray in color or already cooked.

2. Pour in your pasta sauce. Add salt and pepper to taste.

3. Add the cream of mushroom and bring to a boil. Set aside.

4. Cook your macaroni according to the directions at the back of the package. I prefer cooking it half-done so that it will be not over-cooked in baking.

5. Place your macaroni in your desired container and mixed it with the a good amount of sauce leaving some to be placed at the top of the pasta.

6. Put the grated cheese at the top to finish the dish. Make sure that it has been scattered (dunno any other term) well.

7. Bake for 20 mins or until cheese melts.

8. Pair with garlic bread and soda.

I don't have a picture of what I've cooked that evening because we were already famished to even take a picture of it..^_^
