In large sauce pan, bring 2 ½ quarts water to boil. Add noodle pieces and cook until tender, about 10 minutes.
In a large, deep skillet, heat ground beef, breaking apart as it cooks. Chop onion and add to beef. Stir together to brown the meat.
Add garlic and Italian seasoning and cook until ground beef is cooked through.
