Homemade Beefaroni

This dish is easy, inexpensive, and very good! It might just become a staple dish! (And yes, kids love it!)
*1 pound of ground beef
*1/3 cup chopped red (or green) bell pepper
*2/3 cup chopped celery
*1 can of diced tomatoes (I used a can that had Italian seasonings)
*1 tsp salt
* 2- 8 oz cans of tomato sauce
*1 package of dry onion soup
*1 tsp dry parsley
*2 bay leaves
*3 cups of cooked noodles- a minute of so shy of cooking time (You can see that I used the spiral wheat; I caught these on sale and got a double coupon deal and bought these yummy treats for just a few shiny coins!)
Break up and brown ground beef. Drain grease and add bell pepper, celery, tomatoes, tomato sauce, dry onion soup, parsley, bay leaves, and salt. Simmer 15 minutes. Add cooked noodles and simmer for a couple more minutes. Serve with sides or as main course with salad. Total cost was approx $3.50 and made 10 servings (with sides!).
