1 1/2 teaspoons
I just wanted to say that the caseerole came out excellent! We made a side of brown rice with this dish. I made some changes however. I added 2 turkey sausages into the meat mixed and used a little more bread crumbs. Instead of one pack of cream cheese, I used two packets of powdered cheese mix that came with the "hamburger helper". I didnt use hamburger helper, I used an organic brand and used two boxes instead of one. I also added some cut onions to the water. I completly took out the nutmeg and instead added some bays seasoning, thyme, parsley and the salt. I used real garlic instead of powdered then I used a tablespoon of tomato paste along with the a1 sauce. Also, after I cooked the meatballs and the macaroni in the oven. I added a bag full of mixed veggies. Mixed together and added the meatballs on top with Mottzarealla cheese sprinkled over the top and some olive oil. I let it cook for ten minutes and all done! A delicious meal! Thanks.
It makes sense to me to omit the boxed hamburger meal and just use plain pasta and add your own seasonings...otherwise you are just adding a whole bunch of ingredients to try and mask the horrible taste of hamburger helper.
I don't see the value of doing the work this dish takes, and then adding the unhealthy additives present in a boxed Hamburger Helper. I couldn't recommend this dish.
Made this according to directions disappointed,hamburger helper is no help. Wouldn't suggest.
Creamy and cheesy with little fuss.
The noodles would have been better off boiled in water, and the sauce mix just made separately. Omitted nutmeg and added celery seed. Otherwise a very tasty meal.
