- Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the ground beef to the hot pan and break into pieces using a wooden spoon. Season with the salt and pepper, if desired. Cook for 6-8 minutes until the meat is browned and cooked through. Remove from the heat and drain excess grease.

- Add the ground beef, diced tomatoes, bacon bits, fried onions and jalapenos to the macaroni and cheese and mix to combine.
- Transfer the macaroni mixture to a serving bowl and sprinkle with the Parmesan cheese. Serve immediately.
Recipe Tip: For a milder dish, substitute jarred roasted red peppers for the jalapenos.
