This was in my email for recipe of the day. Sounds like my moms end of the month soup .;)

Cheapskate Stew
Submitted By: Laurie Brantley
This is a hearty beef and macaroni stew made with ground beef and vegetables you have on hand.

Prep Time: 15 Minutes
Cook Time: 45 Minutes
Ready In: 1 Hour
Yields: 6 servings
1 1/2 pounds lean ground beef
1/2 onion, chopped
3 stalks celery, chopped
2 cups frozen mixed vegetables
2 cups water
3 carrots, chopped
2 cups cooked elbow macaroni
1 (15 ounce) can tomato sauce
1 1/2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
salt to taste
ground black pepper to taste

Brown the hamburger meat with onion and celery. Drain (if it is fatty hamburger meat).
Add water and carrots, then cook 'til carrots are beginning to get tender. The carrots will be crunchy unless you cook them a fairly long time.
Add leftover vegetables, macaroni, tomato sauce, Italian spices, and salt and pepper to taste, and simmer until the flavors blend and all ingredients are warm through

That looks good. Reminds me a bit of my hamburger skillet dish that I make instead of boxed hamburger helper. Brown 1# of lean hamburger, add onions, green peppers, tomato sauce and cooked noodles or can use macaroni.
