Dinner in a Bag

I received a cook book and a Dinner in a Bag kit from my SIL, Christina, for my birthday this year. It is a very, very simple, yet tasty recipe, so I thought I would share it. It may or may not be something you would want to pre-assemble at Freezer Co-op, but regardless, it is a quick, easy meal made with staples found in most every kitchen.

In a sandwich zip bag:
1 cup elbow macaroni

In snack zip bag:
1/4 c. dried onion
3/4 t. salt
1 t. chili powder
1/4 t. pepper
1/4 t. sugar

In a gallon zip bag:
2 (15 oz. cans) stewed tomatoes
above 2 zip bags.

Label: 1 pound ground beef and contents of this bag. In a skillet, brown beef; drain. Add tomatoes, seasonings and 1/2 can of water. Cover and bring to a boil. Stir in macaroni; cover and simmer for 20 minutes or until macaroni is tender. Uncover and simmer another 5 minutes until sauce is thickened. Serves 4.

Original recipe from the cookbook Recipes for a Full-Filled Life by Diane Fechter. Here is the address for the blog for anyone interested in a copy of the cookbook:
