  1. Sounds like a quick and tasty meal! And thanks for the tip on getting water to boil faster.

  2. This sounds so good. I bet the broth is what makes it taste so good. Thanks for sharing.

  3. Easy and delicious! My kind of recipe!

  4. This looks so good! I will have to try it

  5. I love this dish! I think I will cut the recipe down to 1 or 2 servings since macaroni always tastes better the second day!

  6. This looks yummy and super kid friendly! We will definitely have to try it!

  7. Pasta dishes are always a big hit here. I bet this would be a hit.

  8. I make something very similar. It’s always gone as quick as I put it out.

  9. This sounds great and reminds me of a dish my mother in law used to make. Pasta is king in our home.

  10. Perfect quick recipe!

  11. I actually make something sort of similar to this. Great for the days where you’re short on time, and maybe even short on fridge contents ;)! I totally buy those same tomatoes from Costco, too!!!

  12. This looks really great – especially to bring to a summer party!

  13. I never thought of adding in Tomato Soup – that must give it a lot of flavor. I’m sure it helps to thicken it up too. Great recipe for a quick meal!

  14. This looks yummy and similar to my goulash recipe. I will have to try this out! Thanks for sharing.

  15. I love this recipe and it uses a lot of my stockpile staples so I can whip it up just about any night of the week!

  16. This seems so very easy and a great quick meal. I will have to make this for my family, thanks

  17. yum! This looks delicious. Almost like hamburger helper but way healthier.

  18. We LOVE Costco and all their organic products!

  19. oh fun! I’m always looking for a version of this. I made my own cheesy hamburger mac on my blog a few weeks ago. It always taste better than the box.

  20. Oh, this looks so delicious! It also seems much healthier than hamburger helper. Thanks for sharing this. I must give it a try.

  21. I’d have to try this with Turkey meat…looks yummy :).

  22. This looks like a fast and easy meal to make. Looks really good!

  23. We pretty much grew up on this.. my mom was not the best cook.. we did enjoy it very much though.

  24. My husband is a huge ketchup freak and I know he would love this. Thanks for sharing!

  25. What a great alternative to Hamburger Helper! My kids would eat this up.

  26. Ok what I love is that there are just a few ingredients!

  27. I used Tones brand beef base and there was no need to add salt or pepper. We’ve made it multiple times and we love it.

  28. Just have one question…Is it 3-4 cups of dry pasta or already cooked?


  29. This was more like sloppy joes with Noodles- was that what it was supposed to be?
