Skillet Cheeseburger Macaroni

Skillet Cheeseburger Macaroni
Kid tested and approved.  A great endorsement for this easy and quick to prepare one skillet meal.   This recipe comes from  Cook's Country magazine.   You start by browning some ground beef in a skillet.  Add some onions to the ground beef.  Next you add in the macaroni, chicken broth, tomato sauce, Worcestershire sauce, dry mustard, salt and pepper.   Bring to a boil,  cover and cook until the macaroni is tender.  Next, add some American cheese (I used Velveeta) and chopped dill pickles.  Season with additional salt and pepper if needed.  Your dish is ready to serve.  It has all the flavors of a cheeseburger, ground beef, cheese, mustard, tomato, and pickles mixed together with some macaroni.  Delicious:)
