1 can (398 mL) mixed vegetables, drained
2 cups green beans, frozen (optional)
1 can (370 mL) evaporated milk
1 Tablespoon cornstarch

3 Tablespoons soft margarine
2/3 cup (160 mL) milk

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350F.
  2. In a large pot of boiling water add whole wheat macaroni. Cook for about 8 minutes or until macaroni is tender. Drain and set aside.
  3. In a large frying pan, add oil, ground beef, and onion.
  4. Use a fork or spoon to break up the meat while cooking. Cook until ground beef is brown. Drain fat and return to the pan.

Tips:

  • Try adding ground beef and cook with onion and celery until it is no longer pink.
  • Use different types of canned bean and legumes like black beans, lentils, or navy beans.
