  • 2 (10.5 oz) cans condensed tomato soup
  • 2 pounds uncooked lean ground beef
  • 1 yellow onion diced
  • 2 green bell peppers diced
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 1- 2 tablespoons dried Italian seasoning
  • 2 teaspoons paprika
  • 1 teaspoon salt plus more to taste (I did 2 1/2 teaspoons)
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 (14.5 oz) cans diced tomatoes
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 (16 oz) box uncooked elbow macaroni
  • 1 cup sour cream plus more for serving, if desired
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese plus more for serving, if desired


  • Grease a 6 quart crockpot with cooking spray, then pour in the condensed soup.
  • Top with ground beef (no need to break it apart), then onions, bell peppers, garlic, Italian seasoning, paprika, salt, and pepper.
  • Pour in diced tomatoes, soy sauce, and worcestershire sauce.
  • Cover and cook on HIGH for 3-4 hours or LOW for 6-8 hours.
  • Remove beef and break apart with 2 forks (it’s ok if it’s still a little pink in some spots, it’ll keep cooking).
  • Stir the crumbled beef back in, then stir in the uncooked macaroni.
  • Cover and cook on HIGH for 30-60 minutes or until the noodles are cooked to your liking, stirring halfway through* to ensure the noodles cook evenly.
  • Stir in sour cream and shredded cheese until melted.
  • Taste and re-season, if necessary, then serve and enjoy!

*If noodles aren’t cooked to your liking and all the liquid has been absorbed, stir in about 1/2 cup chicken broth.
