“My Dad never bought the box mix inthe 1950's it was not out than, but he called this Hamburger Helper. Easy to fix.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. 1 Cook pasta as directed on box.
  2. 2 Meanwhile, brown ground beef with garlic powder and Italian seasoning.
  3. 3 Drain grease and add sauce.
  4. 4 Heat.
  5. 5 Drain pasta and add to sauce mixture.
  6. 6 Stir in cheese until it just melts.
  7. 7 Serve with garlic bread and salad.
  8. My Tip's: The only thing I added was a little bit of chopped onion when I brown the beef. I used a bit less pasta and a bit more beef (approx 25%). I used 1 cup cheddar cheese and 1/3 cup of cottage cheese to make it creamy at the end. It was twice as yummy the next day for lunch. This was a quick, easy recipe that I will be working into my OAMC routine. Today, I added garlic and chopped onion to the hamburg, like always. Next time, I will use half the pasta called for and will use my usual mix of basil and oregano in place of the italian seasonings.
