Looking for a recipe

I have an italian neighbor and she refuses to give up the recipe. So i was hoping someone here has seen it. She had macaroni noodles in it, hamburger, a tomato sauce, and kidney beans. I have no idea what else was in it. It was kinda thick. Its been along time since i have had it, and cant seem to find it anywhere, and now my memory is failing me as to what else was in it.

Can you at least get the name of the dish from your neighbor? She might be willing to tell you that since the name is probably not a family secret. Might help you get the right recipe from elsewhere

Edwina it sounds similiar to how you make a mac & cheese. I would cook the pasta part way and then fry up the ground beef with tomatos, spices etc and then mix with the pasta add some cheese bake it and away you go?? just try what you think is in in it? cant hurt really unless your feeding it to someone for supper!

Oh it almost sounds like a chili? added to pasta noodle?

No she wouldnt give me that either, and she is quite out of it most of the time now to ask , she is in her 90's.
It was kinda like a chili, but it wasnt mexican, it was definetly italian flavored.

Hi edwina,

I'm Portuguese, not Italian haha. But, what if you try a hamburger and macaroni recipe and add beans to it?

Otherwise, I'm not too sure how to go about finding this recipe...

Google pasta and beans or pasta e fagioli and I bet you find a recipe or one you can adapt. I have one that is pasta and kidney beans that I got out of the newspaper years ago. No meat in it, not needed with the protein from the beans, but it could easily have hamburger added. It calls for a wedge of parmesan and I always splurge and buy the really expensive, really good stuff. It's so yummy I make it for company when we have a bunch for cross country skiing.

Great suggestion! I will have to google this up myself (Ièm a vegetarian and it seems perfect).

Was this a casserole? Usually what you do is to fry a pound of burg then drain. Measure about 2 cups of dry macaroni. Cook the macaroni and drain that. In a casserole dish, combine all remaining ingredients and bake in an oven 350 degrees until heated through about 20 minutes or so. This is one of those dishes where there is really no measurments as far as adding the ketchup or relish. SO keep putting it in, mixing well, until it's to your taste.
