  • 2 pounds ground beef
  • 1/2 onion diced
  • 1 red bell pepper diced
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 teaspoon Italian Seasoning
  • 1 can crushed tomatoes 14.5 oz
  • 3 cups milk
  • 2 cups beef broth
  • 3 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • 3 cups dry uncooked macaroni


  • In a skillet over medium heat, cook ground beef until it is brown. (Or use your Ninja)
  • Add to a 6 quart slow cooker.
  • Add in the onion, bell pepper, minced garlic, Italian Seasoning, salt, pepper, tomatoes, milk and broth. Stir to combine.
  • Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours or high for 3-4.
  • 15 minutes before serving stir in the pasta. It will look very watery but don't worry the pasta will soak it up. Cover and cook for 15 minutes until the desired tenderness is reached.
  • Stir in the cheese until melted.
  • Serve immediately.


Often times, my family serves this alone. Everyone loves it and it is truly comfort food at its best. But if you want to get some veggies in there, a simple side salad goes great with it and only takes a few minutes to prepare. Green Beans are also really tasty too with it.
