Comfort food for you...

I got this recipe from Simple Recipes & it was yummy! Below is my adaptation. It is pretty much the same as the original recipe, except i added the garlic & cheese. I also used ground turkey instead of ground beef, because we were having Brad's family over for dinner & his sister is allergic to beef! It turned out really good.

Serves 6.
  • 1 pound ground beef (we used ground turkey)
  • 1 yellow onion, chopped (or mixed chopped green onion greens and yellow onion) 
  • 3 cloves garlic, chopped
  • extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon Kosher salt
  • Dash crushed red pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon celery seed
  • 1 large can (28 oz) of diced tomatoes
  • 2 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 cup chopped parsley (i didn't have this)
  • 2 cups uncooked whole-wheat elbow macaroni
  • 1/2 cup shredded parmesan-romano cheese
1. Cook pasta according to package directions.

2. In a skillet, brown the ground turkey, onion & garlic. Add the red pepper, celery seed, canned tomatoes & worcestershire sauce. Bring to a simmer & let simmer for 5 minutes. Mix in the drained & cooked macaroni & parsley. Simmer for another 5 minutes.

3. Serve with a crusty bread & salad.


  1. Oh my I love comfort food. I'm having a minor freakout because comfort food is not the same up north.

  2. This looks really good and it doesn't sound that difficult so I'm going to give it a try.
