OK, love the idea ... too sweet for me, kids asked for seconds. I'd leave out sugar and maybe just tomato paste and adjust the sweetness with the sugar if needed. I tried to balance with vinegar and then worcestershire sauce after the fact. It mostly worked. I only had a green pepper so used carrots & celery, diced very small, which worked well. I didn't add corn because it was already to sweet. Also used whole wheat penne which nobody complained about. So, all in all a solid kid-friendly meal, but tweak the recipe if you don't like your dinner too sweet.

We enjoyed this. I did use elbow macaroni and added some worcestershire sauce to the tomato mixture. I also used a bit more brown sugar than called for. I used a blend of cheddar cheeses. Turned out like an old-fashioned casserole, stretching 1 lb of hamburger to feed 6 or 8 with a nice serving.
