Ingredients:  
Ingredients:  
1 pound ground beef, browned and drained of excess fat
1 medium onion, chopped (add this to the beef toward the end of browning to slightly saute)
1 clove garlic (added with the onion)
1 can tomatoes (whichever size can you want to add)
1 can condensed vegetable soup
1 can chicken broth
1 can kidney beans, rinsed and drained
1 cup elbow macaroni
oregano, salt and pepper to taste

Directions:
Directions:
Brown the beef, adding onion and garlic toward the end of browning to retain some crispness. Add the tomatoes, soup, broth, beans and seasoning to taste. Bring to slow boil, reduce heat and simmer for about 15 minutes. Add uncooked elbows and continue to simmer until noodles are done al dente.

An alternative is to cook the noodles separately and serve the soup over the noodles. This will prevent the noodles from totally absorbing any of the liquid should there be any leftovers.

Personal Notes:
This is an old family reunion favorite. When Mary Rose first heard about this dinner during her first family reunion she was quite hesitant to try it. Upon taking the plunge she said "It was surprisingly good". I guess that goes down as a recommendation.
