This reminded me a lot of hamburger helper, but it was better. My kids loved it & I was able to quickly make it with things I had on hand. Thanks!

I made this for a family dinner and the kids LOVED it. My daughter requests this now every week. Even my one-year-old niece gobbled it up. Quick and easy. Definately a keeper.

Thumbs up from this family! Followed the recipe exactly except reduced taco seasoning to half a package. Didn't think we missed out on any flavor. Just like another reviewer, this does taste like hamburger helper. Thanks!

This was so easy to make. I wasn't sure what to make for a quick dinner. I am in the middle of holiday baking and this was a quick fun, fresh meal that can be made with items I had at hand. I made it with lean ground turkey. Great recipe Megs. I definitely will make this again and I highly recommend this recipe. It is very good.

love this idea.. love spicy anything. i'm vegetarian so had this sans meat. I used about 2 tsp homemade taco seasoning (Taco Seasoning - Budget Friendly Seasoning for Tacos, Burritos..) and a good dose of tapatio hot sauce. will definitely be making this again! i might add cherry tomatoes next time though for color and flavor (especially without the meat)

I omitted butter. I used 3/4 tablespoon of louisiana hot sauce. I omitted the cheddar cheese to make it more healty. And it's delicious like that. I liked that it was easy and fast to do. Thanks Megs :) Made for PAC Fall 2007

Made this last night and it was two of my favorites: CHEAP and DELICIOUS. My friends like to say I can "redneck up" any recipe, so I crumbled up some Doritos on top of it and it was so good! A dollop of sour cream would be good too. And of course, always use twice as much shredded cheese as recommended! I went to the store to get the ingredients for this and my total bill was $5.50, NO LIE. Yum yum in the tum tum!

I'm sorry it took me this long to rate this recipe,it was made on 12/19/07.The way that I made it was quicker than the recipe stated,because the ground beef that had was in my freezer had already been seasoned with Taco Bell Taco Seasoning Clone/Copycat.So while the pasta was cooking,I thawed out the meat in the microwave.I didn't have any hot sauce so,a salsa jack cheese was used instead to give it a kick.I did however have to add about 1/2 cup more milk to get everything to come together.This really good.Thanks for posting,and "Keep Smiling :)"
