This is an excellent recipe which'll be loved by kids as well as adults. I made this with, caramalised onion instead of onion soup mix and used cream cheese instead of jack and cheddar cheese.It came out real creamy and yummy, my husband wants me to make it every alternate day. My 10 month old also liked it a lot and ate the whole plate served to him.
I was not a big fan! My husband trying to be nice said "well hunny it taste like a Hamburger Helper meal!" That describes it well. It really does have that kind of taste to it. So, i guess if you like Hamburger Helper you will like it.
We had left over smoked turkey and I was trying to figure out a way to use it. This was the 1st recipe that I saw and it turned out tasty! I did change a couple things. Of course, we started out with a smoked turkey, then instead of turkey stock and water, I used a can of low sodium chicken broth. Also, I used macaroni noodles, instead of rigatoni. I used the entire package of onion soup mix, didn't add any salt to the recipe (I figured that it would have enough from the chick broth and soup mix). For cheese, I used about a cup of cheddar and a cup of mozerella. Turned out very well!
Excellent way to use leftovers. I didn't have pressed garlic, so I added garlic powder to taste and it worked just fine. I found that I only needed about 10 oz. of pasta, not 16 oz. like the recipe calls for.
My kids liked it, too, which is a bonus!
My 17 year old step son loves this recipe. I have modified it though. I use a can of low sodium chicken broth and add water to two cups and I use a boullion cube instead of the soup... Less sodium. I also use a little more spaghetti sauce to add more nutrition.
Tasty, but not as cheesy as I expected. Next time I would double on the cheese! The onion soup made a strong flavor, so be careful on the amount! I submitted the picture because it really was pretty! :)
This was a pretty good way to use some leftover turkey. I would use less onion soup mix next time.
This was good and easy. I think next time I make it I wouldn't use a whole package of onion soup mix and that I would dissolve it in the water and add it that way.
