What's up Wednesday--Chili bow tie bake

So this recipe is not going to get you points for being gourmet, but it will get you points for being a fast dinner that everyone likes--at least in my family.  This is one of my many go-to "get dinner on the table quick" dinners.  It has saved me many a nights when we get home late from a game or school function and everyone is starving.  Hopefully it can help you out too!
Chili Bow Tie Bake

2 cups bow tie pasta, uncooked
1/2 onion, chopped
1 can tomato sauce
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 lb ground beef
1 can kidney beans, drained
1 can stewed tomatoes, puree
1/4 teaspoon salt
grated cheddar cheese

Cook pasta, and while that is cooking cook beef with onions and garlic powder, drain.  Stir in all other ingredients except pasta and cheese.  Bring to a boil, reduce heat, cover and simmer 5 minutes.  Drain pasta and stir into beef mix.  Heat through and stop with grated cheddar cheese.  

Fast, simple, good,  Enjoy!
