About this recipe: A super-hearty meal, which is a cinch to make. Minced beef and pasta is simmered together in a creamy tomato sauce. Serve with grated cheese, if desired.
I made this last night but modified the recipe as follows: instead of tomato juice, I used diced tomatos with the juice; I did not use the sherry; I added 1 tsp basil and and 1 tsp oregano. I mixed together a cup of Parmesan Cheese and 1/2 breadcrumbs and sprinkled it on top when the dish was finished. It made a nice topping and added extra flavor. It was delicious! - 27 Mar 2003 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
My husband took one look and said, "Oh, we're having Hamburger Helper." Not what I want to hear when I've made something from scratch. Unfortunately, it tasted like Hamburger Helper too. The sherry gave it a little bit of an odd flavor though. - 26 Mar 2002 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Was looking for something to make when i was almost completely out of groceries. SO mine got made with 8oz of tomato paste and just the 1 cup of water needed to melt the bouillon cubes. I did have sherry but had to use celery seed, instead of celery salt and real mayonnaise instead of sour cream.....surprisingly it was quite good....texture was nice and thik and the whole family gobbled it down...Dont get me wrong, i wouldnt fix it for company but it was very nice alternative for low grocery day. - 31 Jul 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
