My family really enjoyed this. I doubled the recipe as I wanted leftovers. I followed the recipe other then I didn't add the optional marmite as I didn't know what it was. The only thing I would do differently next time is to cut back on the noodles just a bit as my family likes more meat and less noodles but that is just a personal preference. My family enjoyed this so much- I didn't have any leftovers!
I cut this recipe in half, using 1 pint of canned ground beef and I skipped the marmite, other than that followed the recipe. It was very quick and easy especially using the canned ground beef. I think next time I would probably saute some onions and mushrooms for it, omitting the onion flakes. TBH I probably just wouldn't make this again, it was just alright.
I followed the recipe pretty closely, except I used low fat/salt beef broth from a can & whole wheat elbow macaroni. But there was too much liquid leftover even after the pasta was tender. I didn't have the time to keep simmering to reduce the liquid, so I had to throw it all out. But I think if I'd had more time to simmer it, it may have worked out. Hence no stars-but a warning to anyone else to make sure to make the time to simmer it long enough, or use less liquid!
