Quick easy and inexpensive, yet my family ate it up. Reminded me of Johnny Marzetti from my youth. Thanks for Sharing
I thought that this was a very good tasting meal. It is great for a weekday meal. Even my wife and two and a half year old liked it and they doesn't like green peppers. I did use the butter cook the ground beef. I also had to add some water to finish cooking the noodles because it started to get too dry about half way through boiling the noodles. I will most definitely make this again. Thank you so much for sharing.
This was a good, quick and easy weeknight meal. I didn't use the butter to cook the ground beef. I also used onion powder instead of onions so my children would eat it :) The children really enjoyed it.
