This is the best! Loved by the whole fam! I even used chickpea gluten free pasta and didn't put the cheese on it and it was fabulous!

Didn't have tomato sauce so I used a can of tomato soup and threw in some stewed tomatoes while I was frying the ground beef. Came out damn tastey

I can't believe this worked... I Googled something like 'recipes for large families' and this guy came up. I have a TON of kids at my house for the holidays and forgot how much they eat. Grocery shopping is becoming a daily activity. This recipe was a huge hit and is probably the least expensive thing I've ever made... Go figure?! P.S. I'm down for trying out the pickle add-on next time. Great idea fellow reviewer!

This was really good. I added extra water and used extra cheese. The kids ate it up! Next time I might add some sesame seeds and pickles to really make it taste like cheeseburgers!

I made this! It was great and everyone loved it. I went by their word as I do not eat meat. I made a few variations- I used onion powder instead of onions , elbow macaroni and increased the water by 1/2 cup. I replaced tomato sauce with puréed fire roasted tomatoes. I will definitely add this to my rotation 👍🏼
