Steve in Rhode Island's Dish With No Name

Here's a recipe I'd like to share that's both inexpensive and nutritious. It's been around for years and I'm sure it goes by lots of different names. It was passed down to my Mom from my Grandmother and she fed four of us kids back in the day when prepping and just getting by was a way of life and had no name. I raised my two daughters on it and now that they are grown and it's just the youngest and myself I still make it.
The great thing about this is that it makes a LOT of food and the ingredients are simple and can be bought in any market. It's cheap and you can stock up on the ingredients as they last for years. This is a two pan meal. I can make this meal for under $3.00.
One 28oz can of Whole Peeled Tomatoes.
Two 16oz cans of Pork and Beans. Campbells or store brand. The 16oz is average size.
1lb of Elbow Macaroni.
Optional is a diced onion and some spices. I like garlic powder, oregano, and black pepper.
In a good sized sauce pan, cook up some diced onion in a little oil.
Add the Whole Tomatoes and mash them up with potato masher or something similar.
Simmer, add spices, then add Beans.
Cook up the Elbow Macaroni.
Add the cooked and drained Macaroni to the sauce and mix. Let it sit for a bit.

Chef's Notes:

Add some Parmesan Cheese to taste.
You'll be amazed how good this meal is and how many people it can feed.
