This is my enhanced version of Hamburger Helper Chili Macaroni. Made with pasta, ground beef, onion, corn and chili seasonings all cooked on top of the stove. Add chili powder for even more flavor if you wish.
In a large pot cook the pasta according
to the package directions but only
cook to an al dente tenderness.
Save 2 cups of the pasta
water then drain the rest.
In a large skillet over medium heat cook
the ground beef and onions until no pink
remains, then remove any excess grease.
Add the tomato sauce, corn,
chili seasoning, salt and pepper.
Stir until combined.
Add the reserved pasta water, stir
to combine and bring to a boil.
Add the pasta and stir well.
Turn the burner to low. Cook
covered, stirring occasionally,
until the liquid is absorbed.
Taste and if you want more
flavor add chili powder.
Stir and then serve.
