Cheesy Beef Macaroni

Similar to one of the “helper” boxed meals but much healthier!  This is a favorite around our house when I don’t feel like cooking a big meal. 1 pound ground beef 6-7 oz pasta (about 2 cups cooked) 2 Tablespoons flour 2 Tablespoons steak sauce 1 teaspoon basil 1/2 teaspoon garlic granules 1/4 teaspoon All Purpose Seasoning Sea salt and ground pepper to taste 1/4 cup tomato sauce 1/4 cup milk (almond milk works great) 3/4 cup beef broth 2 cups sharp cheddar cheese, shredded 1/2 cup sliced black olives (optional) 3/4 cup diced tomatoes (optional) Cook pasta according to package directions.  Drain and cool. Brown ground beef with seasonings and steak sauce.  Strain off the fat. Add broth, tomato sauce, and milk to the beef and heat to a slow boil.  Boil for about 1 minute, stirring constantly.  Add the olives and/or diced tomatoes (if using) and simmer for about 10 minutes. In a small, lidded container, shake the flour with about a 1/4 cup of water or additional beef broth.  Stir into beef mixture and simmer until the sauce starts to thicken. Add cheese and heat/stir until blended then add the pasta and stir gently until pasta is coated with the sauce and all the cheese has melted.
