Homemade Cheeseburger Macaroni

Life is busy around here and sometimes we have to rely on a quick and easy recipe. The recipe we share today is one of our all time favorites. In the early days perhaps this would have been made with  a box meal kit. Now days we know exactly what is going in the recipe and there is no longer any box
1 lb. ground beef
1 tsp (scant) steak seasoning (I used McCormick)
8 oz. elbow noodles
3 c. beef broth
3/4 c. half-an-half
3 Tbsp. catchup
1 tsp. prepared yellow mustard
1/4 tsp. onion powder
1 c. cheddar cheese
Salt to taste

Combine the beef and steak seasoning and cook until browned. 
I broke it up as I was cooking but not too much,
I liked the bigger hamburger pieces in there. 

When the beef is no longer pink add the pasta, 
broth, half-an-half, catchup, mustard, and onion powder. 
Simmer, stirring often, until the pasta is tender 
and at least half of the liquid is absorbed. 

Stir in the cheese and continue stirring until the cheese is melted.
Taste for salt, adjusting as needed.

Serve immediately.
