    I simply love this meal. I had to mix the cheese in through. The 1st time I made it I baked it on top and it was way too dry. I also kept in the tomato sauce with my no salt added tomatoes. Just amazing! A family favorite. Also it fed 8 people so less calories than you think. - 9/30/08

    Oh WOW! I too added the cream of mushroom soup and about 1/3 a can of water. I also seasoned my meat with Weber Gourmet Burger seasoning and it was awesome! Thanks so much for a great recipe! My family loved it!! - 6/6/10

    I added fat free cream of mushroom soup, diced tomatoes with spices in it, garlic, and just did it over the stovetop. It's really good!! - 2/4/09

    I really enjoyed this receipe I did make some changes . First I didn't bake it, my baking dish broke so I did a big one-pot type deal after I cooked my meat. I left out the pepper(forgot to buy), added 98% fat free cream of mush soup and added garlic. The tomatoes came with chilies. Very yummy! - 10/26/08

    I made this today and I to made a few changes just like the others did. I cooked the green pepper & onion with the meat. I added cream of mushroom soup and I didn't have any orgeano so I used thyme instead. And combined a bunch of cheese with it and put some on the top. And that really did the trick - 7/26/11

    It would be nice if the photo reflected the actual product. The picture shows typical Hamburger Helper. However, the recipe sounds a lot more interesting. I'll rate it when I give it a try. - 6/2/17

    Extremely delicious - it was very hard to stop at just one serving!! I added 1 can of 97% fat free cream of mushroom soup to the browned meat before adding in all the remaining ingredients, and only used 1C of cooked macaroni. We had leftovers the next day which were even more delicious. Thanks!! - 1/21/10

    Everyone loved this, including my picky 17 and twin 11 yr olds - they wanted more! I ate this w/out the noodles and am glad I put some away to have as a leftover! My fav. so far! However I did use reg. shredded cheeses and we have beefalo instead of reg hamburger. - 10/30/09

    I threw this recipe into a "recipe analyzer" on another site. It says that for 6 servings, they would be 170 grams each, but that they would carry 426 calories per serving. Not sure why there would be such a difference... - 8/22/09

    We did ours in a skillet. It was wonderful. If you are ever in the mood for cheesy mac try this. It satisfied my craving for something not chicken or turkey. - 8/15/09

    This was very good and it made enough for my family to have it for two nights. I made a couple of changes, as suggested in other posts. I added 1 15oz can of tomato sauce, fresh oregano, thyme and basil and a whole green pepper. I only added 1 1/2 tsp of cumin and made it all in one pot, - 7/23/09

    I forgot the can of tomatoes at the store so I used salsa. It was still a little dry so maybe adding some sort of sauce would be good. - 5/11/09

    It was good. I mistakenly used fat free cheese and it just dried out on the top so had to add some additional regular cheese to melt. - 12/15/08

    Subbed 1 cup chopped cauliflower for 1 cup of the macaroni. Delish! Yes, I found 1 serving to be about 1-1/3 cup as well. - 6/2/19

    Very Good!!! My husband loved it. Instead of ground beef I used Morning Star vegetarian grillers. We're not vegetarians but we don't eat red meat. My husband also used a bit of Cholula Chili Garlic hot sauce and said it was amazing. - 3/24/21

    This is not like anything I was expecting. The photo is fake. I was expecting more of a cheesy sauce like in the photo, like Hamburger Helper. It is not like that at all. Will not be making again. - 3/2/21

    The recipe is more like a goulash than the picture but it tastes amazing. The tomatoes, onion, and green pepper give great flavor and make it colorful. I added a little garlic salt as it was a bit bland and it was amazing. Very filling and a keeper!! - 9/3/20
