    Hag chef's Note:

    This is my own recipe for a quick pasta meal. I love to use fusili, or rotini, but elbow or penne is good too. This is one of my favourite meals, real comfort food!

      We enjoyed this weeknight meal, and almost wish I had a need to brown bag my lunch already. This makes a LOT! I even cut down on the amounts since I had just one lb. of hamburger. Using extra lean meat, quality spaghetti sauce and whole wheat pasta makes this a fairly healthy meal, Thanks Hag chef! MERP'd for Bargain Basement.
