Wicked Good American Chop Suey

I don't know why this recipe is called "American Chop Suey", I always thought that was a weird name for it, but anyway...! This is one of those things that there are probably a million recipes for, but this is how Handy Man made it recently:

- 1 pound ground beef
- 1 green pepper
- 1 medium-sized onion
- 1 tomato
- salt & pepper
- red sauce of your choice (homemade or from a jar)
- elbow macaroni

Chop green pepper, onion and tomato into large chunks. Brown ground beef in a skillet, add salt and pepper to taste. Drain beef, add to crock pot. Add the pepper, green onion and tomato. Stir everything up to combine it. Cover it all up with sauce like this:

Cook on high for 2-3 hours...or you can cook it on low if you want to leave the house for a longer period of time while while it cooks. This smells wicked good while its cooking in the crock pot!

When you are about ready to eat, boil up some elbow macaroni, drain it, then serve all of the sauce-y goodness over the pasta like this:

Then get irritated with Handy Boy, who will gag and sputter in disgust at the onion and green pepper, pick them out, and eat the rest... **SIGH**
