This wonderful delicious recipe is from Ashley Wagner and her recipe link is here
It was full flavoured with cheese and the minced beef.
The top was also amazing with cheese and panko crumbs!
I did mine as a reduced portion and I skipped chili powder
1/4 piece Onion chopped, 1 large pc garlic chopped, 300 gm minced beef, 1/2 can of diced tomatoes (about 200 gm), macaroni about 200 gm, paprika n black pepper and salt, lite sour cream 1/2 cup, milk 2 tablespoon, oil for frying
Panko crumbs 1/2 cup
Shredded cheddar cheese slightly more than 2 cups
1. Cook macaroni and drain water and set aside
2. Prepare beef
Please fry the onions with about 1 tablespoon oil till a bit translucent
Add in the garlic and fry for about 30 seconds
Turn fire to low heat now
Add in the minced beef, salt 1/2 teaspoon, sprinkle black pepper and paprika and fry till beef is browned
You may need to adjust by adding a little oil so that the beef won't stick to base of pan
Now add in the diced tomato with juice and fry for a while more.
Now add in the macaroni, the sour cream n milk n the cheddar cheese 1 cup. Stir for awhile . Off the fire and stir evenly.
Place into a casserole ( I used a round glass one)
Cover the macaroni top with 1/2 cup or more cheddar cheese
Top with 1/2 cup of Panko crumbs
Do not expose macaroni or they turn hard
Bake in oven at 190 degree Celsius for about 30 minutes and the top browns nicely . I did turn the dish at about 15 mins for more even browning.
Enjoy the casserole!
