1 lb ground beef (we used turkey)
1 1/2 c elbow noodles (I used ronzoni brand)
1 can petite diced tomatoes
1-2 tsp paprika
1/2 tbsp chili powder (originally used 1 tbsp...too much for us)
1/2 onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
8 oz tomato sauce
salt and pepper to taste
crushed red pepper opt.

Cook noodles according to package directions.  Cook onion and beef until no longer pink.
Add remaining ingredients to the beef and onion mix.

 Simmer on low-medium heat for 5 minutes or until heated through and flavors blend.  Add noodles and combine.
