Beef Macaroni and Cheese

This was delicious.  I ate a little too much of it today for dinner. I will definitely be making it again. 

1 pound box elbow macaroni
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 green bell pepper, chopped
1 red bell pepper, chopped
1 onion, chopped
4 cloves garlic, chopped
2 pounds lean ground beef
2 (14.5 oz) cans crushed tomatoes
garlic powder
italian seasoning
3 cups shredded Cheddar cheese

1. Cook the macaroni according to package directions; drain and set aside. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

2. Heat the oil in a deep skillet; add the peppers, onion, garlic and saute until soft. Add the ground beef and saute until browned. Add the tomatoes and italian seasoning. Then add the salt, pepper, garlic powder to taste.  

3. In a large bowl combine the macaroni, beef mixture and one cup of shredded cheese. Spread the mixture in a 9 X13 inch baking dish. Top with the remaining cheese and bake at 350 degrees for 20 -25 minutes or until the cheese is lightly browned and bubbly.
