Hamburger Helper

If you've ever had Hamburger helper, you know exactly how delicious it is. Almost every kids favorite junkie meal and every moms quick throw together ready in minutes. 

The only down side is that it is not all natural, the powder which is the main item to the dish is what I consider as a mystery powder (you have no idea all that's in it.) One of the ingredients labeled on the package is MSG (Not a good thing) Monosodium glutamate (MSG) is a flavor enhancer commonly added to Chinese food, canned vegetables, soups and processed meats.. 

Here I am teaching you how to make it on your own from scratch. Few ingredients and same great taste as that boxed stuff without the mystery powder. You know exactly what you are adding to your food.

So grab your pots and pans and Follow along:

1 lb ground beef
1 pack egg noodle pasta (elbow or bowtie can also be used)
1 cup cheddar cheese
1/3 cup mozzarella cheese
1 cup tomato sauce
1 cup heavy cream
seasoning used: salt, pepper, garlic powder and lawrys (to taste)


In a large pot boil your pasta as instructed on the back of the packet, once boiled; drain and set aside.

While in another large pot put a little oil and start cooking your ground beef on medium-high heat. season as you cook. Once well browned and cooked all the way through, add in your tomato sauce, heavy cream and cheese and mix well, lower heat to medium-low heat and allow to cook for about 5 minutes or until sauce slightly thickens. ( I am not too fond of cheese, but if you are a cheese lover go ahead and add extra cheese, you can even add other types of cheese such as parmesan)

Add your pasta to the cheese sauce, mix and serve warm
