I have had this recipe forever and do not recall where I got it! It is a nice alternative to your everyday ground beef and pasta dish.

This was a good, quick weeknight meal. I followed the recipe as written other then I didn't add the durkee onions as I thought I had some but I couldn't find them in the cupboard. I tried the mixture without the tomatoes and enjoyed it. I then added the tomatoes and liked that too. My family said they thought it tasted like tuna casserole with hamburger instead of tuna. Next time I would season the ground beef while it is cooking as we thought the meat was a bit bland. We didn't find this salty at all but we did add a good bit of pepper. Made for ZWT5.
