1 1/2 cups
1 1/2 cups
ground black pepper
1 1/2 cups
uncooked spiral pasta
chopped fresh parsley
I made this last night but modified the recipe as follows: instead of tomato juice, I used diced tomatos with the juice; I did not use the sherry; I added 1 tsp basil and and 1 tsp oregano. I mixed together a cup of Parmesan Cheese and 1/2 breadcrumbs and sprinkled it on top when the dish was finished. It made a nice topping and added extra flavor. It was delicious!
My husband took one look and said, "Oh, we're having Hamburger Helper." Not what I want to hear when I've made something from scratch. Unfortunately, it tasted like Hamburger Helper too. The sherry gave it a little bit of an odd flavor though.
Was looking for something to make when i was almost completely out of groceries. SO mine got made with 8oz of tomato paste and just the 1 cup of water needed to melt the bouillon cubes. I did have sherry but had to use celery seed, instead of celery salt and real mayonnaise instead of sour cream.....surprisingly it was quite good....texture was nice and thik and the whole family gobbled it down...Dont get me wrong, i wouldnt fix it for company but it was very nice alternative for low grocery day.
This is a wonderful dish for a busy night and the whole family enjoys it. It was a bit watery, but still quite tasty. I am making it for the second time tonight and am going to go a little heavier on the stock and sherry to give it more flavor.
I love all the comments about Hamburger Helper. Where did you think Hamburger Helper came from? Serious generation gap thing here, lol! I can still hear my mother saying she wasn't going to pay good money for that boxed stuff when she could make better hamburger skillet herself. That said, I really liked this. I did make a couple of changes. I added 1/2 tsp. of garlic powder and used V8 because that's what I had in the house; no tomato juice. I also had no sherry, and didn't substitute anything. Oh, and I used butter not margerine. I'm looking forward to making it as written next time when I have the right ingredients.
This is a great tasting and easy weekday meal. I did use V8, and added in extra Worcestshire sauce, but I didn't use the sherry. I also eliminated the water and replaced it with more beef stock. For those who like to cut back on the fat, make sure to drain the meat before adding in the rest of the ingredients because this isn't noted in the directions. This is a favorite at my house and I have made it again and again. There are never any leftovers.
I had mixed reviews from the family. Husband was so-so, kids didn't like it, but I loved it! However, I found it to be very soupy. Maybe I did something wrong but I would probably cut out the water and/or add some more pasta. I just saved the extra sauce for another time. I also put some grated Romano on top - delicious! Since I had roast beef on hand, I used that instead of ground beef and I would do that again. Not sure I would like it with hamburger. Anyway - it was very good.
This beef dish was absoulutly beutifull ,Loved it.
