    1/2 cup chopped celery (or more, to taste) 1 - 2 green peppers, chopped 4 oz. uncooked elbow

    2/4 cup cheddar cheese, grated salt & pepper to taste 2 - 3 medium tomatoes, seeded and shopped

    Saute onion and garlic in melted butter until soft (be sure not to burn the garlic). In a shallow
    casserole dish, combine the onions, ground round, celery, green pepper, macaroni, 1/2 cup of the
    cheese, salt & pepper, and tomatoes. Cover and refrigerate overnight. (Do not skip this step!)

    Remove from refrigerator, sprinkle top with the rest of the cheese and bake uncovered in a preheated
    350 degree oven for about 1 hour or until the macaroni is tender. Serves 4 or 5.
