"Very easy & delicious. I did not boil the meat. Browned the meat, peppers, & onion; drained well. Stirred in the seasoning mix & tomato sauce. Simmered 10 min. Combined the meat mixture & pasta mixture together."

"The meat is already seasoned. The meat, tomato sauce and pepper are brought to a boil before pouring over the noodle mixture."
