One Pot Beefy Macaroni

This is a super simple one pot meal. Nothing fancy, but it’s tasty. You can add and subtract seasonings to suit your taste.


  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1 lb elbow macaroni
  • 5 cups water
  • 5 beef boullion cubes
  • 16oz onion dip
  • salt and pepper to taste


Brown the ground beef.

When ground beef is cooked most of the way through add the water, boullion cubes and pasta.


Bring to a boil.

Reduce heat to medium and cook for 10-15 minutes.

Add the onion dip and stir well.


Cook for 5 minutes.

Serve immediately with salt and pepper to taste.

Note – This dish is even creamier if you have a can of cream of celery soup. Add that when you add the onion dip if you try it.
