      We quite liked this recipe. I think maybe the bacon makes the difference. Usually I don't use tomato soup in a recipe of this type, but I tried it and it was good. Better than I expected! I used bowties instead of elbow mac; other than that, I made no changes. I might spice it up next time as Tinkerbell suggests; I agree with her about the red wine. Thanks, I will make this again.

      I loved how the red wine sophisticates the flavor of a classic hamburger pasta dish. The bacon is a very welcome flavor, kids love the macaroni, and I love how easy it is to make a homemade "hamburger helper". As is, this is an excellent base recipe. However, my family's taste leans a little more toward the spicy side, and in the future I'll try adding a diced jalapeno, some chili powder, or even just a can of Rotel tomatoes. I made this recipe as directed until serving time when I realized I had forgotten to bring home my cheddar cheese after cooking at a friend's house. So, I subbed in some fresh Parmesan shreds for myself while everyone else ate it without cheese at all. Thanks for sharing your very versatile creation, Papa. We're going to miss your recipe imagination! Made & enjoyed during the June 2012 Cookathon in your memory.

      This is one of those meals that you know your kids will eat. Hearty and filling, and quick to make on a weeknight. Something all cooks need to have in their cookbooks. Made in honor of Papa D's Cookathon. Thanks for sharing!
