    This was delicious! I found out that Knorr/Lipton no longer makes the Beef Fettuccine mix. The best substitution that I could find was Hamburger Helper Beef Pasta. This is 5.8 ounces so I needed to increase the water to 2 1/3 cups per package directions. Very good and super easy dinner served with biscuits.

    I made this dish last night and it was very good. I added a little onion to ground beef.Easy and quick to make and cost was low. The beef and fettuccine mix is made by Knorr and is found in the aisle next to hamburger helper.

    My family loved this meal. It is very economical for a large family. I served it with a tossed salad, mandarin oranges and a brownie.

    Super simple and super good. There is just enough spice but not too much. I ended up doing this recipe with penne noodles instead of fettuccine due to having them on hand. The recipe still turned out great. I definitely recommend it to anyone.

    For those of you wondering, the fettucine and beef flavored sauce mix actually refers to a beef flavored noodle mix, such as - I made the recipe right out of magazine and didn't have any problems, so it must have been correct in there. Hope this helps!

    The picture and the name look like there are some noodles in this dish. Are they in the sauce mix or am I missing something?
