From the kitchen of Michelle Weston.  This is
delicious and makes a lot! This can easily be
divided into 2 or 3 8x8 foil pans and frozen (before
baking) for another occasion.  I highly recommend
this.
Cook according to package directions:
1 lb box elbow macaroni
Drain & set aside.

In a pan, sauté until soft:
2 Tbsp vegetable oil
2 c green pepper, chopped
1 Tbsp garlic
Add:
2 lbs ground beef (choose lean beef, like 90% or
93% lean)
1 tsp basil
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp oregano
salt & pepper
Cook until beef is browned.
Add:
3 c canned crushed tomatoes

In a large bowl combine beef & macaroni.
Put in a 9x13 dish.
Top with:
2-3 c cheddar cheese

Bake at 350  for 20-25 minutes, or until cheese is
melted & bubbly.
