 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1      pound         93% lean ground beef
    1      large         onion -- chopped
    1      clove         garlic -- minced
   10 3/4  ounces        tomato soup, condensed
    1 1/2  cups          water
    8      ounces        elbow macaroni -- uncooked
      1/2  teaspoon      salt
      1/4  teaspoon      pepper
      1/8  teaspoon      cayenne pepper
   15 1/4  ounces        corn, cream-style
      1/2  cup           lowfat cheddar cheese -- shredded
 
 Preheat oven to 350-degrees F.  In a large skillet, cook ground beef,
 onion, and garlic over medium-high heat, stirring frequently, until beef is
 browned, about 5 minutes.  Drain off excess fat.
 
 Stir in tomato soup, water, macaroni, salt, pepper, and cayenne pepper.
 Bring to a boil, stirring frequently.  Reduce heat to low, partially cover,
 and simmer until macaroni is barely tender, 6 to 8 minutes.  Stir in
 cream-style corn.  Pour into a lightly greased 1.5-quart casserole and
 cover tightly.
 
 Bake 15 minutes.  Remove cover and sprinkle cheddar cheese evenly over the
 top.  Bake uncovered for 15 minutes more or until casserole is bubbling and
 cheese is melted.
