This is one of my favorite go-to recipes. It’s great for fall evenings– warm, gooey and filling. Enjoy!

1 large can (plain) tomato sauce
1 medium can (plain) tomato sauce

Cook macaroni per package instructions. Drain and return to pot. Meanwhile, brown hamburger and onion until the meat is no longer pink. Season meat mixture as desired with salt and pepper. Drain meat and add it to the pot of drained macaroni. Stir in the 2 cans of tomato sauce, the can of tomato paste and the sloppy joe mix. Allow to simmer for 10 minutes on low, stirring occasionally. Before serving, stir in the package of cheddar cheese and mix until beginning to melt. Serve hot.
