Train wreck lf

Yield: 1 Servings

Measure Ingredient
8 ounces Elbow macaroni
\N \N 1 1/ c veggie broth
\N \N Liquid smoke; (optional)
1 cup Ground beef not
2 cups Frozen or canned veggies (we use french-cut green beans & corn; the only veggies my two will agree on) (up to 2-1/2)
2½ cup Spaghetti sauce w/veggies
6 ounces Soy mozzarella; shredded (up to 8)

I forgot about a kid-pleasing quick meal until mine asked for it last night ~ the SAD version was affectionately called Train Wreck by the college student who used to make it for group meals. My version is still like some sort of transportation mishap, but it's got veggies in it, they eat it, and it's nearly fatfree!

In a large pot, boil enough water to cook the macaroni and, in a separate pot, heat the veggie broth for the beef not. When the broth comes to a boil, add a couple of drops of liquid smoke if desired and the beef not, boil again and then simmer until liquid is nearly gone. Meanwhile, cook the macaroni. At this point the kids pour the frozen veggies into the colander and, when the macaroni is done, I pour it over the veggies to defrost them.

Of course, if you're using canned, you don't need to add them to the colander. ;) Pour some of the spaghetti sauce into the bottom of the large pot and then put the beef not, macaroni and veggies in, adding the rest of the sauce over it and mixing well. Heat the mixture thoroughly, covered, over medium low heat, stirring occasionally. Top with soy mozzarella and cover. Serve when cheese is melted. Very junk-food tasting and fast!
