Hamburger Macaroni

I made this for Sunday dinner this week & it hit the spot, especially with the arctic blast we got this week.  It's been SO cold and there's nothing like warm food to make it better.

Recipe from LaLoosh.
Yields 6 servings
269 calories per serving

1 lb lean ground beef
2 c whole wheat elbow macaroni
1.5 c beef broth
5 oz white mushrooms
2 lg tomatoes, cut into chunks
2 lg carrots, cut into chunks
1 lg onion, cut into chunks
4 cloves garlic, peeled
2 c water
2 tbsp whole wheat flour
2 tsp thyme
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper

In a food processor, process garlic until mince, then add carrots & mushrooms and process until finely chopped.
Turn it off, add onions & tomato, & pulse until chopped.

Cook beef in a Dutch oven over medium-high heat for 3 - 5 minutes.
Stir in chopped veggies, paprika, thyme, salt, & pepper and cook, stirring often, 5 - 7 minutes.

Stir in water, 1 1/4 c  broth & noodles & bring to a boil.
Cover, reduce heat to medium & cook, stirring until pasta is tender, 8 - 10 minutes.

Whisk in the flour with remaining 1/4 c broth into hamburger mixture.
Stir in sour cream & stir for 2 more minutes.
