Today, I am sharing our friend Jackpot's favorite meal! His mom loves to cook for him!
Jackpot's Beef and Pasta
1 box whole wheat shells
5 cups water
1 lb coarse ground chuck
1 16 oz can whole tomatoes
8 ounces cheddar cheese
1 teaspoon "Better than Bouillon" beef flavor
Add the broth and water to a big pot and bring to a boil. Add the pasta, turn heat to simmer and cover. Simmer for 45 minutes. Pull beef into chunks and add to hot pasta. Stir well, cover and let it sit for about 5 minutes. Uncover, stir, beef will be done. Stir in the Better than Bouillon." Then, drain the whole thing in a colander. Just drain, do not rinse in water.
Put beef and pasta back into hot pot. Stir in the cheese, I crumbled the cheese for this, but you can shred it. Drain the tomatoes. Break them up into pieces and add them to the beef and pasta.
Cool before serving.
Optional: sprinkle dehydrated kale on top before serving. I make this with the dehydrator.
