Gluten Free One Dish Thrifty Meal

This simple meal and be varied to your tastes with different seasonings, cheeses, meats, etc.  Based on a recipe from Food.com

Thrifty Meal
1 large onion, diced
2 teaspoons minced garlic
1 tablespoon canola oil or other cooking oil
1lb pound lean ground pork (or other ground meat)
4 cups of stewed, diced or home canned tomatoes
2 cups water
10 ounces gluten free macaroni – I used Tru Roots Ancient Grain Penne Pasta from Costco
salt and pepper to taste
parmesan or cheddar cheese
optional spices to add: parsley, oregano, greek seasoning etc.
* you could also add a cup of canned beans, corn or peas or chopped frozen spinach or swiss chard.

Heat oil in large saucepan.  Add onion and saute.  Add ground pork and fry until done.  Add remaining ingredients (except cheese) and simmer for about 20 minutes or until pasta is cooked.
Sprinkle on parmesan when serving.

* I added a little extra water while simmer the mixture.
* this served 5 of us and the next day we sprinkled grated cheddar on the leftovers and heated it up in the microwave.  Leftovers served 3.
