Ingredients

    1 pound ground beef,
    3/4 cup hot water
    2 cups milk
    1 1/2 cups small pasta shells,
    1 cup stewed or diced canned tomatoes
    1 tablespoon corn starch
    1 tablespoon mixed Italian herbs= 3 tablespoons fresh
    1 teaspoon onion powder
    1 teaspoon garlic
    1 teaspoon salt
    1 teaspoon sugar
    1 cup cheddar, shredded, near the end.

Directions

1 pound ground beef, 3/4 cup hot water and 2 cups milk, 1 1/2 cups small pasta shells, and 1 cup stewed or diced canned tomatoes, prepare a sauce packet including 1 tablespoon corn starch, 1 tablespoon mixed Italian herbs, 1 teaspoon onion powder, 1 teaspoon garlic, 1 teaspoon salt, and 1 teaspoon sugar. Stir in 1 cup cheddar, shredded, near the end.

Step One: Brown and drain one pound of ground beef.
Step Two: Add 3 cups of liquid (water and/or milk) along with your 1 1/2 cups of pasta, sliced potatoes*, or rice (use only 1 cup of rice), the sauce packet, and sometimes tomatoes. Simmer covered. The simmer time will be approximately 12-20 minutes for most varieties. If cheese is used, stir it in during the last few minutes of cook time and put the cover back on the pot.
Step Three: Turn off heat and uncover. (Some varieties have cheese tossed on as a topping at the end instead of or in addition to being mixed in.) Let stand to thicken at least 5 minutes before serving.
