This is something that I threw together when I couldn't have the pasta with meat sauce that I was preparing for my family. It's quick and easy.

Simple and yummy, the whole family enjoyed. I used leftover brown rice, cut up broccoli and 1/2 pound of ground beef.Thanks for posting.

Absolutely delicious! I only used about 1/4 cup beef bouillon so that it would not have excess liquid. I did also add a couple tablespoons of margarine and a very small amount of red pepper flakes. This is a great meal: quick, easy, and cheap; and even my picky husband enjoyed it. Thanks!

This recipe is so simple, but it tastes very good. It's not as heavy as you'd think, and the recipe can be doubled easily. I served it with hot cooked corn and steamed spinach.
