I used elbow macaroni because that's what I had on hand. My kids loved this.

Very good. I would maybe use a little more green pepper and a little less salt. I made it with turkey meat also.

Maybe it was the fresh ground beef from [advertising removed] in Texas, but this was a family hit. It's tasty and easy to put together, and there's not a lot of extra fat added.
