Excellent weeknight recipe. As another reviewer noted, this is really a lot of macaroni; I cooked the entire amount but ended up not stirring in about a cup (cooked). The parmesan cheese gives the sauce a slightly creamy flavor. My picky eaters loved it.

I used diced tomatoes with basil and oregano. I found that there was way too much pasta. For the amount of ground beef and tomatoes, I'll use 1 1/2 cups of dried pasta the next time I make it. We did like the recipe. It was almost as good as Stouffer's.

A nice, quick meal to put together. I doubled the tomato sauce because it wasn't moist enough for me with only 8 ounces. I also added basil and oregano. I served this garnished with extra shredded cheese. This is a good one for kids and adults. Thanx for sharing!

We enjoyed this for dinner tonight. My husband has a dislike of macaroni (psychological I say)so I used broken spaghetti instead. It worked fine. I used Diced Tomatoes with onions, peppers and celery. It does need some salt and pepper but adding at the table worked fine for us. Thanks for sharing your recipe.

This was quick and easy. Also, very simple ingredients, reminds me of comfort food my mom always made. Will make this again. Made for ZWT 2008

Quick and easy. I added a little italian seasoning because I was concerned about the lack of spices in the recipe. The parmesan cheese adds a lot of flavor. My husband added hot sauce. I didn't need all the macaroni noodles.

This is great and reminds of what my family calls goulash!!! My mom never added the tomato sauce and always used cheddar cheese. This is a great recipe to use as leftovers for lunch, filling and you get protein, vegetables and carbs all in one dish. Great recipe and nice switch from the usual. Thanks Mama_Jennie.

I didn't have enough parmesan cheese so I used cheddar cheese and I didn't have any diced tomatoes so I just doubled the tomato sauce. It was a very quick and easy way to use ground beef. My husband who is very picky loved this meal! It was delicious!
