"A fun bowl of cheeseburger taste! Had to use elbow macaroni because it's what I had, though it was still whole wheat so I didn't change the flavor that way. Also, the 96% lean ground beef I buy comes in pound packages, so I used 4 more ounces than the recipe called for. Otherwise, followed as written and I love it. I can see a day where I get a huge craving for it!"

"Absolutely disgusting! This is the first recipe I have tried via Taste of Home that I did not like. I'm thinking if I had not used the relish it may have tasted better but I really did not like this recipe.

I did follow the instructions as written. I will say this, my significant other said it was okay, he wasn't wowed by it and two days later we still have leftovers."

"Not a fan of the relish. I almost left it out and wish I would have. I added bacon, Worcestershire sauce and cut the mustard in half and used Dijon instead of yellow, which I think helped. One kid loved it but the second one would not touch it. My husband and mom liked it but agreed the relish was not necessary."

I also used about twice as much cheese and also added in two leftover cooked crumbled bacon strips. I had no dill pickle relish on hand so I used about a tablespoon of juice from a jar of dill pickle spears. Family commented that it really did taste like a cheeseburger.

"This actually tasted pretty good! I decided to make it with my kids in mind since it was a bit healthier then other cheeseburger pasta recipes. My husband and I really enjoyed it too. I did not have steak seasoning so I put in some Country Bob's All purpose sauce for steak and beef, and no relish since I had none, and it still tasted great. Next time I make it I'll definitely add the relish."

"My daughter saw this & had been begging to make it, so we did. My kids don't care for diced tomatoes, so I used a small can of tomato paste & added some water. I also added a couple tablespoons of mayo. It was a huge hit!"

"i made this for dinner a few weeks ago and was kind of skeptical about how the flavor would turn out. when i was serving it up my boyfriend and i both thought that it looked bland. when i bit into it, boy was i surprised. it really does taste like a cheeseburger. the pickle relish really comes through as well as the ketchup even though there isn't really too much in it. i did not use mustard for i am a mustard hater but that was the only thing i changed. this was a good recipe and i will make it again but it wasn't amazing but still recieves a thumbs up in my book :)"

"I used whole wheat rotini. I used half the relish it called for, but used sweet relish which is what I had on hand. I only used half the mustard. Before I realized it was Montreal steak seasoning, I added a teaspoon of A1 steak sauce. That was an ok addition, but I think next time I will see how it is without the A1, then add it if I want it.I do think it would be a very kid friendly recipe"

"This was just average to me. I love the fact that it's easy and super quick, and I always have the ingredients on hand, so it will get made again. I just didn't taste the wonderful flavor that everyone else did. I only used 1Tbl of relish (as we don't like it, but def. use it), and 1/2Tbl. mustard. The mustard does have a very strong flavor."

"Very Tasty! I doubled the recipe because there are 6 of us and it got mixed reviews from the kids. The relish and mustard are very strong in this recipe, so if you have anyone in your family that does not like pickles or mustard, serve it on the side and add it at the table...easy fix to suit everyone! I will make this again but with those changes! Thanks for the great recipe! I thought it tasted more like a Burger King cheeseburger! Enjoy!"

I would suggest starting with 1 TSP at a time and adjusting accordingly. I also used rotini pasta instead of penne because that's what my kids prefer."
