In a large pot or skillet over medium heat, brown ground beef with onion and garlic until cooked through and no longer pink. Drain fat, and return to heat.
Add beef broth, diced tomatoes, pasta sauce, tomato paste, and Italian seasoning. Stir to combine. Bring to a boil.
Add macaroni. Stir. Reduce heat to a simmer. Simmer covered for about 20 minutes, until noodles are tender and cooked through and sauce has reduced.
Stir in sugar and salt and pepper to taste.

If you need a substitute for beef broth, use chicken broth or water in a pinch.
Top with cheese! Add some shredded cheddar, mozzarella, or Parmesan on top. After cooking, sprinkle on cheese. Then cover, and allow the steam to melt the cheese so that's it's melted and gooey on top!
Add veggies! This is a great dish to sneak in some extra veggies or use up leftover veggies. Try zucchini, bell peppers, mixed vegetables, cooked carrots, or riced cauliflower.
