  1. Preheat an oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  2. Pour the hot water into a 3 quart casserole dish. Stir the softened cream cheese into the water. Mix in the sauce mix from the packaged dinner and the nutmeg. Add the uncooked noodles and stir until well combined. Cover and bake in a preheated oven for 30 minutes.
  3. In a large bowl, combine ground beef, bread crumbs, egg, Worcestershire sauce, seasoned salt, and garlic powder. Mix well and form into golf ball sized meatballs. Place a cooling rack onto a cookie sheet and arrange the meatballs on the rack. Bake in the preheated oven until no longer pink in the center, about 15 minutes.
  4. Stir the cooked meatballs into the noodles and return the casserole to the oven. Cook uncovered for 5 to 10 minutes.

It makes sense to me to omit the boxed hamburger meal and just use plain pasta and add your own seasonings...otherwise you are just adding a whole bunch of ingredients to try and mask the horrible taste of hamburger helper.


I don't see the value of doing the work this dish takes, and then adding the unhealthy additives present in a boxed Hamburger Helper. I couldn't recommend this dish.


I just wanted to say that the caseerole came out excellent! We made a side of brown rice with this dish. I made some changes however. I added 2 turkey sausages into the meat mixed and used a little more bread crumbs. Instead of one pack of cream cheese, I used two packets of powdered cheese mix that came with the "hamburger helper". I didnt use hamburger helper, I used an organic brand and used two boxes instead of one. I also added some cut onions to the water. I completly took out the nutmeg and instead added some bays seasoning, thyme, parsley and the salt. I used real garlic instead of powdered then I used a tablespoon of tomato paste along with the a1 sauce. Also, after I cooked the meatballs and the macaroni in the oven. I added a bag full of mixed veggies. Mixed together and added the meatballs on top with Mottzarealla cheese sprinkled over the top and some olive oil. I let it cook for ten minutes and all done! A delicious meal! Thanks.
