My family loved it! i did change it a little though i used diced tomatoes, a can of hunts tomato sauce, oregano, onion, and turned out great! :)



This is an incredibly easy dish to make and tastes good. It's like Hamburger Helper, but without paying for an overpriced box of noodles and spices. I'll make again next time I have extra pasta sauce and beef laying around. (Tip: Use whatever pasta sauce you want, not just Ragu!)



Mix between spaghetti and hamburger helper but not quite as good as either one. I do appreciate how easy it was though. I kept having to add water and cooked noodles a lot longer.
