when i first looked at this recipe i thought it looked interesting but i knew it would need more spice to suit me. i started out by adding 5 cloves minced garlic to the onions and hamburger. then some tony chachere cajun seasoning along with the salt and pepper. i substituted beef broth for the water and added a tsp hot sauce for good measure. after it started cooking it started to look dry so i added 16 oz of tomato sauce and i tsp each of basil and oregano. in hindsight i would have added another 1/2lb of hamburger. it took another hour to cook and it reminds me of beefaroni. tasty.
I bet you could put the noodles in uncooked. I cooked mine half way before placing them in the crockpot and they came out pretty mushy. Good and easy. Next time I am going to put in some garlic salt and cook my meat in taco seasoning.
This was really good. Seemed to be missing something so I added hot sauce. Was great! Everyone in my house loved it! Thanks!!
