Reviews for Stovetop Beef 'n' Shells
Sort By :
"Haven't tried this so my rating is not real but I have to say this is NOT American Chop Suey (and I live in R.I.) since that has green peppers in it and uses elbows not shells."
"I added a little more garlic and some fresh parsley. Very tasty!"
"Love this recipe. So quick and easy. Since we are not big meat eaters I use only 1/2 lb. ground beef and add more pasta. I make a pound of pasta and add to meat mixture the amount of cooked pasta that looks good to me. I also substitute 1 tsp basil, 1/2 tsp oregano, & 1/2 tsp of thyme for the sugar, pepper and salt. So quick and so good!"
"Just like hamburger helper but much healthier. This recipe made our make-again list!"
