I gotta be honest, I love Hamburger Helper. Whether it’s beef stroganoff, cheeseburger macaroni or the beef enchilada flavor, I’m totally down. I will gobble it up like it’s my last meal on death row, I enjoy it that much. But the kids--who you would think would be into it (because, well, they’re kids)--just can’t bring themselves to eat it. Nearly every time I make it, they make a face and ask: “Why do you buy that boxed stuff, when you can probably make it better from scratch?”
My reply is almost always the same: "Because it's good now leave me and my Hamburger Helper alone, damn.”
Ground Beef & Pasta Skillet Dinners
Here are three of my very own, homemade, absolutely-from-scratch, definitely-not-from-a-box ground beef and pasta skillet dinners. And wouldn't ya know--the kids love 'em!
Veggies, ground beef and pasta or rice: the staples of every delicious skillet dinner.
