I was not too impressed with it. It needed more flavor to me. It was better than HAMBURGER helper. Like one review said needed to add more water for the pasta to cook the way it needed to be. I used Pace HOT Picante sauce. I added flavor to the meat: dice brown onion, garlic, salt, pepper, oregano and cayenne pepper. I made my own cheese sauce rather than using Velveeta cheese. It was 3 tbsp. sour cream, 2 tbsp. butter, salt and 3 handfuls of mozzarella cheese and melted in the microwave. Added to the mixture and it was more than enough.
