This is a very easy, yet tasty weeknight meal.

1 cup elbow noodles
1 Tablespoon vegetable oil (if using ground turkey)
1/2 medium onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
3/4-1 pound ground turkey or beef
1/2 Tablespoon chili powder (you can up this if you like heat)
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
15 oz can of tomato sauce
1 can kidney beans, rinsed and drained
cheddar cheese, optional
sour cream, optional

Set pot of water on the stove to boil. Cook macaroni according to package directions.

Meanwhile, if using ground turkey sautee onion and garlic until softened and add the turkey. If using ground beef, you can saute onion and garlic with the beef as it renders the fat and skip the oil.

Add seasonings and continue to brown the meat. Once meat is browned, add tomato sauce and beans. Cover and simmer for 10 minutes. Stir in macaroni.

Top with your choice of toppings such as cheese and sour cream.
