  1. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat, and stir in the ground beef until crumbly and no longer pink, about 5 minutes. Stir in the onion, garlic, Italian seasoning, cayenne pepper, and salt; continue cooking until the onion has softened and turned translucent, about 5 minutes more. Drain off the excess grease, and add the tomato paste and crushed tomatoes. Bring to a simmer, then reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer 1 hour.
  2. Preheat the oven's broiler and set the oven rack at about 6 inches from the heat source.
  3. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add pasta and cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until al dente; drain. Stir the cooked macaroni into the meat sauce until combined, then spread into a 9x13 inch baking dish. Sprinkle with Cheddar and Parmesan cheeses.
  4. Broil in preheated oven until the cheese is bubbly and golden, about 5 minutes.

Just something that was edited out: if you don't have Italian seasonning, try 1/4 tsp Thyme, 1/4 tsp oregano, 1/4 tsp basil and 1/4 marjoram or rosemary.

I thought this was very good. I did, however, add more seasonings and used tomato sauce since I didn't have crushed. I didn't have italian seasoning so I used 1/2 tsp basil and 1/2 tsp oregano (I started with 1/4tsp each but it needed more flavor), reminds me of spaghetti. It only needs about a minute under the broiler, though next time I think I'll just mix the cheese into the whole thing and not dirty another dish. My boys all gave me a thumbs up, so it's a keeper. Thanks for your recipe.

I tried this recipe tonight and it was a HIT, my family loved it. I didn't use the entire 1 pound of cheddar cheese though, I used half and it was more then enough cheese...I think if I had used the entire 1 pound it would have been way too much cheese! So it worked out just great this way, thanks for the recipe!
