When ever we grill, we usually grill extra meat or get a roast charred for a future meal. The extra flavor is worth planning ahead to make the most of time using the grill.
Then there are times when too much was cooked, this can happen when guests are expected, but showed up with small appetites. This recipe will help you with the "we cooked too much meat, now what?" problem.....

by the seat of my pants
1 medium onion diced 1/4 inch
1 T oil
1 t garlic salt
2 14 oz cans Italian stewed tomatoes
Seasoning of choice, I chose to make this very simple but you could add your families favorites here.
1 - 1 1/2 pounds ground beef or this is a great way to use up extra grilled meat, diced 1/4 inch
8 oz elbow macaroni (or up to 12 oz, depending upon how much pasta your family likes)
2 c (or more, it is up to you) grated cheese, use what you have
Saute the onion in the oil, until wilted, add the garlic salt and cook on low while preparing the tomatoes.
Pour both cans of tomatoes into a blender and puree, add this to the onions.
If using raw beef, saute separately and drain the excess fat, add to the tomato mixture.
Cover and simmer 1 hour.
Cook pasta until 1/2 done, drain well.
Stir into the tomato mixture and turn into a 9X13 glass pan.
Cover with the grated cheese and bake 30 minutes.
