Even vegans need white trash comfort food

I am obsessed with a casserole recipe that is basically Velveeta, ground beef and macaroni.  Tonight I could no longer resist its siren song… it had to be mine.

Cheezy, Meaty, Macaroni White Trash Casserole

  • 1/2 box (4oz) macaroni – cooked until just al dente and drained
  • 1 package of Gimme Lean, ground beef style – browned and crumbled
  • 1 batch of  cheezy sauce
  • 1 can of condensed tomato soup
  • 1/2 green bell pepper, diced
  • 1 medium yellow onion, diced
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Mix up one batch of cheezy sauce (1 can of rinsed and drained garbanzos, 1.5 cups veg stock, 3 heaping tbsp of Red Star Nutrition Yeast, 1 tsp onion powder and 1 tsp garlic powder – puree in blender on low until totally smooth – about 5 minutes), add can of tomato soup and puree on low for an additional 2 minutes.

Put cheezy tomato sauce in a large sauce pan, add onions and bell pepper.  Bring to a simmer.  Add cooked and drained macaroni and browned Gimme Lean.  Mix well and transfer to a 2 quart casserole dish.  Put in a 350 degree oven for 30 minutes.

Remove when top is toasty brown.  Serve with salad and/or apple sauce for a real white trash touch!

Serves 6 for less than 350 calories!  Take that, Velveeta!
