This is a one-dish meal with great flavors that you eat, and eat, and then eat again later. It makes a large amount, but never lasted more than a few days in my family. My dad got this recipe from my Aunt Barb when he found out he had celiac disease (allergic to wheat). It's the first thing I remember my dad cooking on a regular basis, and when I asked him what it was he entitled it, "Quick Skillet."

Nice recipe for being gluten-free, followed the instructions exactly except I cut the salt in half. It's a nice fresh version of hamburger helper...

Very simple and tasty, as well as being gluten-free, casein-free and egg-free, thank you. My kids don't like the spice as much. so I mix the spices/salt/pepper in a ramekin or small bowl. I only add half to the whole recipe and I leave the rest on the table for people to add to their dish as they prefer.

This was very tasty, but I have to say - VERY spicy! I'm wondering if the amount listed for the black pepper is wrong. I only put in one scant tablespoon and it still seemed like way too much. So, I can't imagine what 2 tablespoons would have been like! It was too spicy for the kids, but my husband and I loved it. Thanks!
