prep: 15 mins cook: 45 mins total: 60 mins Servings: 6 Yield: 6 servings


6 cubes beef bouillon

1 white onion, chopped

1 stalk celery, chopped

1 ½ pounds lean ground beef

2 tablespoons chili powder

1 (28 ounce) can diced tomatoes

1 ½ cups tomato juice

½ red bell pepper, chopped

2 tablespoons brown sugar

2 cups water

¾ cup uncooked elbow macaroni


Place ground beef into a large soup pot over medium heat. Cook the beef until it begins to lose its pink color, about 8 minutes, breaking the meat up into crumbles as it cooks; stir in celery, red bell pepper, and onion. Continue to cook until the beef is browned, about 8 more minutes. Drain excess fat.

Stir in diced tomatoes, tomato juice, water, chili powder, brown sugar, and beef bouillon cubes; cover, reduce heat, and simmer for 30 minutes. Stir in the macaroni, and continue simmering until the pasta is tender, 10 to 15 more minutes.
