This the second time I have made this dish. Always a hit with my husband and oh so yummy! I pair it with my cheesy dill bread.

okay - color me surprised. I had beef, and and onion and no idea what to do. I took a mac and cheese and used the noodles - had only a can of diced tomato's so I tossed that in instead. It wasn't gourmet, but still! a good meal for the price and ease and it went in the fridge for leftovers too! lots of options if you get creative with your spice cabinet. Not sure what the 1 star reviewer expected for $3.00.

This is actually really good. It's kind of like a hamburger helper version but better, I added cayenne pepper and Oregeno too it... enjoyed it, will make again.

Super good and fast. I didn't feel like running into town, and I had all of the ingredients as usual staples! All 4 of us liked it!

I have no clue how this recipe has five-star reviews. I'm really wondering what kind of a scale we're grading on - even if Alpo was 1-star I'd still probably only give this 3-star rating. I guess if you're someone who puts plain ketchup on your pasta this would be something you'd enjoy, but to me it was a waste of ground beef and went straight in the trash.
