I pulled this recipe off of a now unknown website where it was posted by Sue. I have modified it some to our families taste buds. If you like your pasta "al dente" this is NOT for you, it's more like a kicked up hamburger helper!

We really liked this recipe. I've made it a couple of times now without any changes. A quick one-dish meal and a quick clean up.

Michelle, we loved this! It is like a kicked up version of hamberger helper. I cut the white wine down a bit, and increased the oregano and garlic powder, and added in Velveeta cheese and Parmesan cheese at the end. We really enjoyed this tonight with a salad! Thanks for sharing this easy recipe!...Kittencal:)

Michelle, you are right this does remind me of hamburger helper. I made a few minor changes to this recipe which included adding one green pepper and a tired zuccini to the pan, using chicken broth instead of wine (I was out of wine) and I also used dried onion flakes instead of an onion (because I was also out of onions). I also wanted to use some herbs from my garden so I used fresh oregano, some chives and parsley. I think this is a really good recipe for families that like hamburger helper type of one-pan meals as there is virtually no clean up.
