This is the ultimate simple and fulfilling dinner that uses items I typically have right in my own cupboard. So easy to prepare and cooking all in one skillet makes it a snap for clean up. —Juli Meyers, Hinesville, Georgia

"This was easy, quick and wonderful. It reminds me of my Mom's American Chop Suey recipe but without the heavy tomato base. The whole family loved it. I had no problem with too much liquid or not thick enough. It was great! Thank you for sharing we will be making this again."

"This is a keeper! I think the flavors work very well together, particularly the addition of the steak seasoning. I used whole milk because it's what I had on-hand and I used slightly more than the 3 cups of broth (I used two cans which is almost four cups), but the recipe turned out wonderfully."

"This has quickly become a family favorite. Easy to make, and if there are leftovers, they heat up great for lunches later in the week."

"I just made this today (7/10/14) and it is a huge hit even with my little guy that doesn't like Hamburger Helper. I did it exactly like the recipe with out problems. I'm not sure why anyone would have problems with it thickening unless they didn't read the ingredients to see that it is uncooked pasta. I will be making it again!"
