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 👍🏼

I had to make this with some alterations (this was a last-minute "well we have ground beef, what should we make?" meal so we didn't have all the ingredients). Used just table salt and garlic powder instead of onions and garlic salt, and used about 3 cups of water instead of 1 and 1/4 cup water and one can of tomato sauce, and small shells instead of medium. But it turned out great! The pasta turned out really creamy, weirdly enough, and it was delicious. If I wasn't trying to watch my weight I would've probably eaten the whole skillet myself.

This pasta is great, my nephews came over and LOVED IT, I'm thinking about adding blood sausage, to give it a " blood sausage cheese burger" profile.
