Directions

  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook elbow macaroni for 8 to 10 minutes or until al dente; drain, and set aside.
  2. Brown ground beef with garlic in a large skillet over medium heat. Strain off fat, if necessary. When meat is lightly browned, add carrots and cook until tender, about 5 minutes. Stir in zucchini and oregano, and continue cooking another 5 minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  3. When vegetables are tender, stir in tomato soup, water, and prepared elbow macaroni, and cook for another 5 to 10 minutes. Serve with crumbled feta cheese on top, if desired.

This was an easy, quick, and delicious recipe! My husband is Greek so to kick the taste up a little more I added a Greek seasoning mixture which added a nice taste. I also added the feta cheese into the pan at the end instead of putting it on top. Will make again!

This recipe doesn't live up to its name. It is basically a macaroni, hamburger, tomato soup recipe. The only thing Greek about it is the "OPTIONAL" feta cheese.

this was very good!!! I shredded the carrot & zucchini, so my picky family wouldn't realize it. They all ate 2nd helpings. I would double the amount of feta cheese. It truly makes the dish.

Just happened to have the ingredients on hand (and little else in the house) so gave it a whirl. Better than expected! Pretty good quick and easy weeknight dinner! Only change - used a can of diced tomatoes and ketchup (to thicken) because I didn't have any tomato soup. Feta is really the key to the flavor, I would say it's not an option!

My husband liked his, but the rest of us didn't. It is definitely missing something. We love greek food, especially feta, and it just tasted bland. I'm going to try it again with alot of tweaking- more salt, some Greek Seasoning, a can of diced tomatos. Hopefully that will help.

The feta cheese is what makes this dish, so don't skimp on it. I would prefer a little more of the carrot and zucchini in proportion to the macaroni. Taste is good, although without the feta it would be just ordinary.

This was pretty tasty. I used diced tomatoes instead of soup. I liked the texture. The feta cheese really adds a nice tang.

Meh, it was good, edible, and all that, but it wasn't anything *special*. The only change I made was using whole wheat elbow pasta. It's a good basic meal, and I'm sure kids would love it, and it's great for when you don't have much going on in the pantry and want something quick and hearty.
