Still too hot to cook or do much. . .
2/3 Cup Powdered Milk
1-2 Tablespoons Corn Starch
1-2 Teaspoons Garlic Powder
1-2 Teaspoons Onion Powder
1-2 Teaspoons Paprika
1 Teaspoon Sugar
3 Cups Water
1 Pound Ground Beef
1 Diced Onion, Optional
1 1/2 Cups Uncooked Pasta Noodles
1 Cup Shredded Cheese
In a small bowl or ziplock bag measure out all the ingredients for the sauce mix. Sauce mix can be measured out into containers and stored like any other dry good. Excellent for a quick home made dinner option. You can even measure out the 1 1/2 cups pasta and have that in the bag with the sauce mix all ready to go.
To Prepare Dinner:
In a large pot or skillet over medium heat, scramble cook the ground beef and the onion if using until beef is cooked through and no longer pink, about 10-15 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
Add 3 cups of water to the pan, the pre-measured sauce mix and the pasta.
Bring everything to a boil.
Reduce heat slightly, cover and allow to simmer for about 8-12 minutes, stirring occasionally until noodles are cooked tender.
Stir in shredded cheese, continue to stir until melted into the sauce.
Turn heat off and allow to stand for about 5 minutes before serving to allow sauce to thicken.
