Easy mince and macaroni supper

    This is a tasty and cheap supper that the family will love. It's a great use of storecupboard ingredients, and incorporates some veg for extra goodness. If you prefer, top with grated Parmesan instead of feta.

    • 450g lean minced beef
    • 2 cloves garlic, pressed or minced
    • 2 medium carrots, quartered lengthways and sliced
    • 1 large courgette, quartered lengthways and sliced
    • 1 1/2 tablespoons dried oregano

    Prep:10min  ›  Cook:25min  ›  Ready in:35min 

    1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to the boil. Cook macaroni for 8 to 10 minutes or until al dente; drain, and set aside.
    2. Brown mince with garlic in a large frying pan over medium heat. Strain off fat, if necessary. When mince is lightly browned, add carrots and cook until tender, about 5 minutes. Stir in courgette and oregano, and continue cooking another 5 minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
    3. When vegetables are tender, stir in tomato soup, one tin's worth of water and prepared macaroni, and cook for another 5 to 10 minutes. Serve with crumbled feta cheese on top, if desired.

    This was an easy, quick, and delicious recipe! My husband is Greek so to kick the taste up a little more I added a Greek seasoning mixture which added a nice taste. I also added the feta cheese into the pan at the end instead of putting it on top. Will make again!  -  01 Mar 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    this was very good!!! I shredded the carrot & zucchini, so my picky family wouldn't realize it. They all ate 2nd helpings. I would double the amount of feta cheese. It truly makes the dish.  -  21 Aug 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Just happened to have the ingredients on hand (and little else in the house) so gave it a whirl. Better than expected! Pretty good quick and easy weeknight dinner! Only change - used a can of diced tomatoes and ketchup (to thicken) because I didn't have any tomato soup. Feta is really the key to the flavor, I would say it's not an option!  -  09 May 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
