This is a combination between my mother-in-law's recipe and my mom's (and neither one really follow a recipe). So, I hope you all enjoy this Pokopac original!
Sorry for the late post ladies!
1 lb. ground beef, browned (and seasoned to your liking)
1 jar spaghetti sauce
1 can diced tomatoes
(sugar, tomato paste, and vegetable juice used in various amounts to attain desired sauce consistency)
cooked macaroni noodles
Brown ground beef and season to your liking. (I added a bit of garlic powder, salt, and Italian seasoning.) Add sugar, tomato paste, vegetable juice, diced tomatoes, and jar of spaghetti sauce to ground beef. Mix together. *(This is where I stopped and prepared to freeze.) Cook box of pasta, drain, and add to mixture. Heat through and enjoy!
*I prepare ground beef mixture and put it in a freezer bag, squeeze out the air, seal, and freeze flat. Cooked pasta can be added on serving day.
Thaw completely. Cook pasta according to package directions. Drain pasta and combine with sauce. Reheat on stove top. Serve sprinkled with Parmesan cheese. Enjoy!
