  • 1 sweet red pepper diced
  • 1T chili powder
  • 3/4 cup flour
  • 6 cups milk
  • 3   8 oz packages macaroni noodles
  • 1/2 cup sour cream

Cook and drain the noodles. While they are cooking, in a skillet on med heat cook ground beef, pepper, and onion, stirring occasionally until well cooked. When the meat is cooked add flour and continue stirring, when meat is well coated with flour, slowly pour in milk while still stirring. Continue on med heat until mixture thickens. About 5-10 minutes, still stirring. It should be like gravy. Then add thickened meat sauce to the noodles. Add sour cream and stir well. It should be slightly soupy. Cover dish and let sit for 15 minutes then serve. The pasta will absorb some of the gravy so it ends up more like a casserole.
