This is very good!!! The only change I made was that I used elbow macaroni and cooked it before adding it to the meat mixture. I usually do that with any pasta dish I make (even Hamburger Helper). That takes the starch out of the pasta, making the dish taste better. I found that when I put the pasta in the meat mixture before cooking it, the starch in the pasta affects the flavor of the meat mixture and the dish as a whole. Plus, I found that the miat mixture thickens before the pasta can get fully cooked. The pasta comes out kind of gummy. In my opinion, cooking the pasta first prevents that. Since I cooked the pasta first, I didn't need to add as much water as the recipe calls for. I don't think it needs anything else. But then, I can't eat food that is very spicy so this fit in just right. I will definitely be making this again. Thanks for a great recipe NurseDi/ :)

This just needed something, but I\'m not sure just didn\'t work for us, nobody really found it to their liking. I\'m sorry, I wish I could rate it higher, but we just didn\'t care for the taste.

This was great for a quick weeknight meal. Very tasty and I love that you don't have to cook the macaroni first. I added the corn as suggested. Yum, I just love these quick, low-mess meals! Thanks--
