Creamy Beef and Pasta Recipe

A friend shared the recipe for this fix-it-and-forget-it meal. I often make it for our children when my husband and I go out. Even the baby-sitters have commented how much they like it. - Carol Losier, Baldwinsville, New York

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 9, 2013

We farm and I often stop in at home and throw all of this in the crockpot just a few hours before supper time. It only takes 3-4 hours on low. My husband and kids love it and I love how easy it is. I make a similar oven mac & cheese that doesn't call for ground beef and only one can of soup. Bake @ 350 for one hour uncovered stirring half way through. I think when I am short on time I am going to try throwing in some browned hamburger and see how it turns out. Bet it tastes the same!

Loved it! Thankfully, I read the reviews first - it barely took 2-1/2 hours on low. My husband teased me about making "Hamburger Helper" from scratch. Then he took a bite, and was too busy eating to tease anymore. Rated a definite keeper by him and the kids!

Have not yet had pleasure making this; planning ahead ~ having same day surgery in few weeks. It will be terrific to come home to dinner made in advance.

MY REVIEW

I wanted to pass along my changes, and how I adapted it to be a quick meal, instead of a slow-cooker meal (I didn't run across it in time to make it in the slow-cooker). I cooked the pasta just shy of al dente and used only 1C of milk, figuring that the amt. of milk in the slow-cooker version was needed to cook the dry noodles. I probably used only 1 1/3C of cheese, too, that being all I had. I added a few generous shakes of Worchestershire sauce, and just mixed it all as you would any pasta bake. Baked at 400 degrees for about 25 minutes. It was very, very good. A nice alternative to the only other pasta bake I seem to have in my repertoire (sausage, spinach, mozzerella, tomato sauce and penne). I will make this again.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 4, 2012

I only put 4 stars due to the cook time. Thank goodness I read the reviews first or it would have been ruined. Mine finished on low in 2 1/2 hrs and the pasta is almost over cooked. The only thing I changed was used some real onion since I didn't have powder and followed someone else and added some worstershire and ground mustard. Good simple meal and I agree about the beef stroganoff comparison
