My husband's Grandma Curten used to make this meal for him when he was a little boy. It's a regular around our house, which is fine with me, because it's easy to fix and so good. The veggies add a nice crunch.—Rose Curten, Modoc, Illinois


  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 bottle (28 ounces) barbecue sauce
  • 8 ounces elbow macaroni, cooked and drained
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 medium green pepper, chopped
