Homemade Hamburger Helper is a perfect description. This is a very good recipe for family night because it is easy and should please everyone. DH loved it with no additions while I needed a boost of salt, pepper and a dash or two of hot sauce. I used No Yolk noodles, hamburger style veggie crumbles, low fat mushroom soup and cream cheese along with peas (just because I like them better than corn). Thanks loof for a tasty comfort dinner :D

My DH loved it, but to me it was rather bland. I'll bet this dish would be a great hit with children though! I didn't have enough wide egg noodles so I subbed elbow. Way too many using that version of pasta! I ended up using about half. Thanks for posting! Made for PRMR 2013

This was quick and easy and had a good flavor. I had a 12 oz bag of noodles and glad I used less, with the 16 oz I think it may have been too dry. I got my 5yr DS to eat it but no luck with 1yr DS, but he doesn't eat a ton of things yet so that is expected. Made for Football Pool 2010 Divisional Playoffs win.
