This is the simplest recipe I think you will ever make. I just threw this together for supper and eveyone loved it. You can add items you like as this is a basic, simple recipe.

I modified this for our budget and it came out perfectly. The first time I made it with regular old hamburger, cheap spaghetti sauce, and shredded cheddar and then followed your instructions. The second time I just made on it on the stove top. Both came out perfectly. Thank you for sharing.
