Macaroni Casserole

Oh I'm easyyyyyyy, easy like sunday morning! There's a new tradition at home now. The guys get to cook Sunday lunch. Yaaay for the girls. Its funny how Nits is looking over at the TV from the kitchen all the time craving for his Sunday football. This is how it works. I pick out the recipe and they make it. This week I picked Tarla Dalal's macaroni hotpot recipe. So easy and very very fingerlicking yummy. They did a very good job. Now if only everyday was a sunday.

Ingredients (Serves 4)

1 1/2 cups elbow macaroni, boil in salted water , drain and keep aside
Two onions, sliced in rings
One large green pepper/capsicum, sliced in rings
One can baked beans
4 tomatoes, boil in water for about 5 minutes, skin and chop them (or use canned diced tomatoes)
1/4 cup tomato ketchup
4 cloves chopped garlic
1-2 tbsp butter
1/2 cup grated cheddar cheese
salt to taste

Melt butter in a deep pot. Add onion rings and saute till transparent. Add green pepper rings and saute a bit more. Remove a few onion and pepper rings for garnish. Add garlic and tomatoes and cook for about 5 minutes. Add macaroni, ketchup, beans and salt. Mix well and cook till heated through. Grease a casserole with butter. Add the mixture into it. Cover with onion and pepper rings. Sprinkle grated cheese on top. Bale covered for 20 minutes at 400 F. Serve hot with a side salad.
