We made the following changes: 1)We only had a 1/2lb ground beef and 4oz of Velveeta, so we just halved the recipe. To make up for the missing cheese, we sliced up a bit of regular sharp cheddar. 2)We used rainbow rotini pasta. 3)We added some instant minced onion while we were browning the beef (I always do!). Even though we halved the recipe, and used a small baking dish, we couldn't see how to layer everything twice. We ended up just layering the pasta, beef, sauce, then cheese only ONCE. We were skeptical on how it would taste, but we actually liked it more than we thought we would! We both agreed we would make it again. My husband was the one to take it out of the oven, and he mentioned that as he was scooping it out, it was rather watery on the bottom (I didn't get the chance to look). I wonder if it was from the sauce. The ingredients say spaghetti sauce, but the directions say tomato sauce. If you use spaghetti sauce, I would suggest getting a quality brand - good and thick! We may add some garlic to the browning beef next time! Good recipe! Easy and quick!


I tried....but it was just ok. I gave it 3 stars because it was so easy...but another reviewer is tastes like Hamburger Helper. (to be honest I found this site because I was tired of eating that stuff). I am sorry, I won't be trying this again. Thanks anyway for the post.

My mom made this when we were kids for lunch then I fed it to my kids for lunch, who now feed it to their kids for lunch. This also makes a great dinner on nights when your looking for something fast and easy. To make it different and spice it up I use one green pepper diced small, 1 small onion, diced small. 1/2 tsp. of garlic powder, 1/2 tsp. of pepper. Add green pepper, onion, garlic powder or fresh garlic along with pepper and saute with hamburger till cooked. Add one jar of homemade or jarred spaghetti sauce. Simmer sauce with hamburger mixture till ready to use. Cook macaroni till done. Drain macaroni, mix half of beef mixture with macaroni in baking dish, top it with cheese of your choice. Add remaining beef mixture and top it with cheese of your choice. Serve with warm bread and butter and a green salad. If you think it's to dry, add more sauce the next time.
