american chop suey for 100 pp
i need to make american chop suey for 100 people how much do i need ingredients wise
This macaroni and hamburger dish is very similar to Johnny Marzetti. It consists of elbow macaroni and bits of cooked ground beef with sautéed onions and green peppers in a thick tomato-based sauce. You can make the meat base and the mac early, mix and bake to reheat, or mix all heat and serve loose.

Macaroni can be substituted with any pasta of similar size. The onions or green peppers may be omitted, or replaced with other vegetables or mushrooms. Whole, diced, or crushed tomatoes, tomato sauce, and tomato paste are typical sauce bases for this dish. Black pepper, herbs and Worcestershire sauce are added.
