How to make American Chop Suey

American Chop Suey is the New England version of macaroni and beef/beefaroni. Some people top this dish with cheese before baking it/finishing it off. I don't season too agressively to allow each person to do so on their own. Some people also serve this with sweet relish.

  1. Roughly chop pepper, onion and celery and set aside

  2. Cook pasta according to package directions, perhaps a minute or two less

  3. Brown the ground beef in a pan, drain off excess fat

  4. Combine ground beef, pasta, vegetables, tomato sauce and tomato paste in a large pot or oven-safe dish. Either finish cooking on stovetop (partially covered) over a low flame or in the oven (covered) at ~300F. Since everything has already been cooked this is really just to blend all the stuff together.
