      My gosh, this was the easiest ever to make. It tasted very good! Much better than Hamburger Helper and much fresher. I used mild salsa and topped the finished dish with a sprinkling of Parmesan. Served with a salad and french bread. Great!!

      This is easy to make with simple ingredients, and better for you than boxed mixes or takeout. I cooked and drained the pasta before mixing everything together, and used ground turkey and grated Monterey Jack cheese.

      Super easy, and really tasty. I did sub colby/jack for the Velveeta, since I almost never have it in the house, but otherwise followed the directions. Loved how I didn't have to pre-cook the noodles, but it did take a few more minutes than the recipe. No biggie. Added pepper to taste, and next time I make this, I'll add some garlic, and maybe brown the meat with some taco seasoning to up the flavor. Thanks for sharing!
