Quick Italian Ground Beef Dinner

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Kittencalrecipezazz

A wonderful-tasting dish, and easy to make dish. (note: although the noodles from the packaged mix could be added to the mixture without pre-boiling, but I find that they remain hard, it is better to cook them separately, then just add to mixture before serving.)

This meal was great! The only change I might make is to add the mozz. later because some melted to the bottom of the pan. Overall it tasted great! Everyone liked it in my house!
