Ingredients:  
1 large onion, diced
1 tbsp. canola oil
salt
black pepper
oregano
chopped garlic
paprika (to taste)
one 28 oz. can whole tomatoes, pureed
2 lbs. lean ground beef
1 box macaroni
1 c. grated Cheddar cheese
1 c. Mozzarella cheese

Directions:
Directions:
Sweat the onions in the oil with a three-fingered pinch of salt. Add the beef and cook it, breaking it up as you do. Add another three-fingered pinch of salt or two, along with the dry seasonings. Add the tomatoes and bring to a simmer, then reduce the heat to low and cook for an hour. Cook the macaroni in boiling water till itís half done. Drain it and add it to the tomatoes. (I wanted this to stretch into two meals, so I used the whole box, but if you want your dish to be very tomatoey and beefy, you might want to add only half the macaroni). Stir it into the sauce. Taste it. Add more salt and other seasonings as needed, and cover. When itís cooled and the pasta has absorbed the tomato juices, transfer it to a large baking dish and cover it with foil. It can sit out for several hours like this, be refrigerated for up to two days, or frozen a few weeks. Bake it in a 400 degree oven till itís piping hot (about 45 minutes if itís cold to room temperature). Just before youíre ready to eat, remove the foil, cover macaroni with the cheese and broil till the cheese is bubbly.
