Wow! It’s been a hot minute since I sat down and wrote a blog post but what better way to get back into the swing of things than doing a blog about Bid Daddy in the kitchen making his favorite Macaroni Creole Recipe! His mom made this when he was younger and this is what she called it so here goes…
- 28oz. can of Tomato Sauce (we use Dei Fratelli)
- 10.75 oz can of Campbell’s Tomato Soup
- 1 cup of your fave pasta sauce (our fave is Stancato’s Meat Sauce)
- 2 lbs. Ground Beef
- 1/2 lb. Mild Italian Sausage
- 1 sweet onion – chopped
- 1 red pepper – chopped
- 1 lb. elbow macaroni
- 1 tsp. onion powder
- salt & pepper
- grated romano/parmesan cheese
- olive oil and or avocado oil (our personal fave)
Start by getting your water boiling, we add in a bit of salt and a little avocado oil to our water and we get that going first!
In a separate large skillet combine your 2 pounds of ground beef and a half pound of mild Italian sausage (or a whole pound if you prefer) but Big Daddy just uses half! In a smaller skillet combine your chopped sweet onion and chopped red pepper and sautee them in a bit of oil until they are cooked! Smells heavenly!
Once everything is cooked add your pepper and onion mix into the larger skillet with the meat mix! Add in your 28oz can of tomato sauce and your can of tomato soup and stir together. Put on low/medium heat and cover to let thicken until your pasta is ready!
When your pasta is ready, drain your noodles. Put the noodles into a large bowl or back into the pot and then add in your saucy mix! Mix it all together and then eat and enjoy! We like to sprinkle the top with a bit of ground parmesan/romano cheese, salt and pepper! You have dinner and leftovers for the next few days and it’s just as yummy the next day or served cold!
