Beefy Cheesy Pasta

This is sort of our go-to meal when we didn't plan anything ahead. It's pretty easy, we usually have everything we need, and it's pretty yummy. Jim likes to describe it as a grown-up Hamburger We end up using one pound of ground beef, one pound of pasta...any type really, although we stick with non-spaghetti type pasta, and 2 cloves of garlic.. Below is the actual recipe though.

1/2 pound lean ground beef
1 onion, diced
1/4 cup soy sauce
1 clove garlic, minced
5 cups rotelle pasta
1/4 cup milk
1 tablespoon butter
5 slices processed American cheese

In a large skillet over medium heat, cook beef, onion, soy sauce and garlic until beef is brown and juices run clear. While beef is cooking, 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. Return cooked pasta to its pot over low heat; stir in milk and butter. Stir in beef mixture until well combined. Stir in cheese slices, one at a time, until melted. Serve at once.
