I've posted this before, I'm sure. I made it last week. Doubled the recipe. I used the ditalini. I
also used a coarse grind of groud beef and I believe that was an improvement over the regular stuff
-- it gave it more tooth. Go ahead, make sport of this recipe. I don' care. It's tasty, and with a
green salad, some broccoli, and some toast, a decent meal.

I cook like this quite often; with a pound of hamburger, about 5 ounces of dried noodles or
macaroni, and whatever else looks good that day. It's just like "Hamburger Helper", but cheaper and
tastes better.

Best regards, Bob

Yeah, I'm always looking for ways to make "Hamburger Helper" at home. Like chili-mac. I'm pretty
sure I have a recipe around here for ground beef stroganoff, too. Mom makes something similar to
this; she called it "Spanish Sion". Lord only knows why :)

When I was a kid, we made this sort of thing with Campbells tomato soup. (whispers) I still do
sometimes.
