    4 Points Per Serving

    1/2 pound ground beef, extra lean
    1 cans tomato soup -- 10 3/4 oz
    1/2 can stewed tomatoes -- 7 to 8 oz
    1/2 package elbow macaroni -- 8 oz

    Brown ground beef and drain. Meanwhile, cook macaroni according to package directions, drain. In a large pot, combine all ingredients.

    Serving Size : 4

    This is a great recipe to add any fresh vegetables you like and of course garlic and black pepper. Experiment, it will taste different every time.

    it looks like this recipe is incomplete. Shouldn't the ingredients, once you add the soup and tomatoes, be cooked for a while? If so how long would you guess. I'm a cooking newbie.I want to use my new pasta pot.
    thanks

    I'm thinking you wouldn't have to cook this long since everything is already cooked, i.e., the tomatoes and the tomatoe soup. Just cook until thoroughly heated, that's about it.

    I can't believe someone else has this name for this recipe! I grew up with 'American Chop Suey' and I always thought it was a name my mom made up! Silly naive me!

    This is such an easy dish to make and so good! We always ate it on nights that we needed a quick meal.

    An extra point idea...add some grated chedder cheese to the top. We also add parsley and oregano. You don't have to cook it long, other than to heat it through.

    Anyway, great, simple meal!

    My mom made this recipe years ago! I thought she made up the name too!! Only she didn't add tomato soup, just tomatoes, green peppers and onions. I've remade the recipe to include garlic, diced tomatoes and crushed tomatoes instead of stewed and I've used the gardenburger crumble - nobody knows it's not ground beef!! It's really good!
