  • 3 pounds ground beef
  • 5 small onions, chopped
  • 3 cans (10-1/2 ounces each) condensed tomato soup, undiluted
  • 1 tablespoon paprika
  • 3 medium green peppers, chopped
  • 1 can (16 ounces) peas, drained
  • 1 can (8 ounces) mushroom stems and pieces, drained
  • 1 jar (4 ounces) pimientos, drained
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 package (16 ounces) medium pasta shells

  1. In a Dutch oven, cook beef and onions over medium heat until meat is no longer pink, 5-7 minutes, breaking up beef into crumbles; drain. Add soup and paprika. Cover and simmer 1 hour.
  2. Stir in green peppers, peas, mushrooms, pimientos, salt and pepper. Cover and simmer until peppers are tender, 15 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, cook macaroni according to package directions; drain. Place in a large serving bowl; top with meat mixture. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
