"This was delicious! I found out that Knorr/Lipton no longer makes the Beef Fettuccine mix. The best substitution that I could find was Hamburger Helper Beef Pasta. This is 5.8 ounces so I needed to increase the water to 2 1/3 cups per package directions. Very good and super easy dinner served with biscuits."

"I made this dish last night and it was very good. I added a little onion to ground beef.

Easy and quick to make and cost was low. The beef and fettuccine mix is made by Knorr and is found in the aisle next to hamburger helper."

"Super simple and super good. There is just enough spice but not too much. I ended up doing this recipe with penne noodles instead of fettuccine due to having them on hand. The recipe still turned out great. I definitely recommend it to anyone."
