My Mother-in- law used to make this for all of the grandchildren (omit onions). They loved it! Now, they make it for their own children!

I tripled the recipe and my kids loved it. I only have a small container in the fridge and my son has already told me that he will be having it for lunch tomorrow. Thank you Patty for this great recipe. I will be sharing this on Facebook and with friends.

Found this in my Taste of Home Cookbook. This recipe is a keeper! We've been busy in the evenings with swim lessons and ball games. I was able to make the meat/sauce mixture in the afternoon and when we were home for an hour in between activities I was able to quickly cook the pasta and we enjoyed a delicious meal. I try and not eat past 7pm and sometimes that is hard to do when you're busy. I'm sure I'll be making this again soon

This is delicious, especially when you add Worcestershire sauce. It was a great quick meal.

My husband and I enjoyed this a lot! I made no changes to the original recipe and it turned out very well. Perfect easy, hearty, satisfying meal for two (or three).
