    ms_bold's Note:

    I adopted this recipe after the departure of my dear friend, Shelly. She had suggested it to me during one of my quests for dinner ideas, and I had prepared it quite some time ago with delicious results. At that time, I used fresh spinach which I added to the saute pan briefly with the cooked ground beef and onion and cooked just to wilt down. It was an easy comfort meal for us. Shelly's witty and insightful comments on the original recipes were as follows: So much better than hamburger helper! I got this from the "Southern Living" website before it required that you be a subscriber to the magazine to look at their online recipes. The original recipe calls for a 13 1/2 oz. can of whole leaf spinach, but I hate canned spinach so I use frozen. In fact, sometimes I use two boxes of frozen spinach instead of just one. The original recipe also called for just one cup of cooked macaroni but that just didn't seem like enough. You can also add another can of tomatoes if you like. Experiment! So easy and delicious!

      I also added chopped garlic with the onion and added tomato paste with my tomatoes, but didnt have any REGULAR diced tomatoes --only had Rotel. I am the NON-spinach fan in the house, but the flavor was nice -- next time, will melt cheese over it like another poster suggested ... that DOES sound yummy!! :D

      Really good! My DSS ate three helpings. That seems to be the magical helping number for him LOL. I really liked the dish, but my DH was so so with it. I'll make this again.

      This was a very easy, very fast dinner that was satisfying and tasty. I added Ms. Bold's suggested garlic and balsamic vinegar as well as some italian seasonings. This one is a keeper -- especially for evenings when I feel unprepared and can't handle anything too complicated.
