I've never tried Hamburger Helper, so I can't comment on that. However, I just got up from the table after trying this recipe and it was simply delicious. As recommended below, I didn't use water, but used a total of 2 cups of tomato juice and 2 cups of beef broth (didn't have any beef stock handy). I think that using the water would dilute the wonderful blend of flavors. We don't do celery, so I didn't put in the celery salt, but added 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt and 1/4 teaspoon garlic granules. Also, I used ziti for the pasta (that's what I had on hand) and it was done in about 25 minutes. The sour cream and sherry at the end gave it a very smooth and sophisticated flavor and the parsley adds a little freshness. With those changes, this becomes a 5-star rated quickie dish. This one goes into the ranch's cooking binders! Thanks!
