1 box elbow macaroni
1 lb ground beef
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/4 tsp salt
1 jar tomato basil pasta sauce
a splash of red wine ( I just go by taste)
a dash of sugar (I go by taste here too)
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1 10 oz container fresh Alfredo sauce (I used Buitoni and liked it. I don't like most jarred alfredo sauces)
1 1/2 cups shredded Italian blend cheese
Preheat oven to 350. Cook macaroni accordin to package directions; drain and set aside.
Meanwhile, cook ground beef, onion and salt over medium high heat, breaking up meat until it is no longer pink. Drain well and return to skillet. Stir in pasta sauce, wine, sugar and cinnamon. Brig to a boil; reduce heat, and simmer uncovered about 5 minutes.
Spoon half of macaroni into a 9x13 lightly greased dish. top with meat mixture. Spoon remaining macaroni over meat mixture. Spread Alfredo sauce over macaroni, and sprinkle with cheese.
Bake for 30 minutes or until browned and bubbly. Remove from the oven and let stand 5 minutes before serving. Makes about 8 servings.
