  • Pampered Chef 12" Nonstick Skillet or Large Stockpot


  • 1 lb Ground Beef
  • 1 Yellow Onion finely diced
  • 3 cloves Garlic finely diced
  • 1 Tbsp Watkins Beef Soup & Gravy Mix
  • 1 can Corn Kernels drained and rinsed
  • 2 cans Diced Tomatoes 14½ oz cans
  • Tbsp Soy Sauce low sodium
  • 1 Tbsp Oregano dried
  • 1 tsp Basil dried
  • 1 Bay Leaf
  • ½ Tbsp Watkins Sea Salt
  • ¼ tsp Watkins Ground Black Pepper
  • 1 cup Elbow Macaroni uncooked


  • In your Pampered Chef 12" Nonstick Skillet (or a large stock pot) cook the ground beef over medium heat, breaking up the meat into small pieces as it cooks. I like to use my Pampered Chef Mix 'N Chop to make this process easier. Cook until there is no longer any pink in the meat.
  • Stir in the onions and garlic. Cook an dstir the mixture until the onions are translucent.
  • Mix the Watkins Beef Soup & Gravy Mix into the water, then add the water, tomatoes, soy sauce, and seasonings to the pan. Mix thoroughly.
  • Bring the mixture to a boil over medium heat.
  • Reduce the heat to low, cover, and simmer 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Stir in the macaroni and canned corn, cover, and simmer over low heat until the pasta is tender, about 25 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Remove from heat, discard the bay leaf, and serve.
