I bought a bunch of Hamburger Helper on sale so that we would have quick, easy meal options (in case I am late for work and Daniel trys to cook.). Now I need to use it! Regular Hamburger Helper is not too bad, but we really enjoyed this recipe
A quick warm meal for a cold January day
1 lb lean (at least 80%) ground beef (I used less)
1 medium onion, chopped (1/2 cup)
1 box Hamburger Helper® lasagna
5 cups hot water
1 can (14.5 oz) whole tomatoes, undrained
1 cup frozen corn
2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
1 small zucchini, chopped (1 cup) (we omitted this since we did not have zucchini)
Additional grated Parmesan cheese, if desired
In frying pan, cook beef and onion over medium-high heat 5 to 7 minutes, stirring occasionally, until beef is thoroughly cooked; drain.
Stir in hot water, contents of sauce mix pouch (from Hamburger Helper box), tomatoes, corn and cheese; break up tomatoes. Heat to boiling, stirring constantly.
Reduce heat; cover and simmer 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Stir in contents of uncooked pasta pouch (from Hamburger Helper box) and zucchini. Cover; cook 10 minutes longer. Sprinkle each serving with additional grated Parmesan cheese.
High Altitude (3500-6500 ft): After breaking up the tomatoes in the pot, add the uncooked Pasta. Heat to boiling, stirring constantly; reduce heat. Cover and simmer 10 minutes. Add zucchini; cover and cook 10 minutes.
I am not sure where I got the recipe, I had it saved on my laptop, but we have enjoyed it! I will be looking for other recipes to use the contents of my cupbourds.
