    I really enjoyed this one. Used onion and garlic instead of powdered of each and added Worcestershire and ground mustard like some other reviews suggested. Left out sugar. Came out great and the kids really liked it too. Will make again!

    This dish turned out great. I did have to add some additional seasoning for my taste but this is definitely better than the manufactures hamburger helper. It's also inexpensive considering I had most of the ingridents in my cabinet with exceptions to the ground beef and pasta noodles.

    As everyone has said - needs some serious help with the flavor profile. This is amazingly bland. We did a family experiment - add your own flavor. Recipe was followed exactly except split the cheese - 1/2 shredded cheddar, colby jack and 1/2 velveeta. Two winners were adding Tostitos queso cheese and adding Tony Chachere’s Creole seasoning. Both added too much salt to the profile but added much needed flavor. Trick might be modifying the beef browning process so there is depth to the dish. It is not bad and can be a lot of fun for those who like to tweak flavors. It is truly a blank canvass.

    It was delicious! I used ground turkey and in addition to the recipe’s ingredients I added a tablespoon of vegetable bouillon. Served with broccoli on the side.

    The whole family enjoyed this recipe. I took another reviewers advice and did half cheddar and half Velveeta, which made it creamy. Next time I will use all Velveeta.

    Fabulous! Kids bored of the same old mince recipe. I did add a diced onion to it. Thumbs up, so much so they want it for dinner tomorrow too .... would serve with peas.

    I added cumin for the ground beef and chili powder and it was really good. I think it would be good with onion too :)

    Turned out pretty good. I added extra cheddar cheese, a few spoons of cheese whiz, and garlic salt.

    My mom made this dish for us when we were growing up. Once I got older, the one ingredient I added was " Velveeta cheese"!!! That's what was missing...mixed with cheddar it really gives it a good taste/kick! Once the Velvetta is added the recipe gets 5 stars

    I figured out what was 'missing'. Add ground mustard to taste. Approximately .5-1 tsp.

    alright, I would definently buy the best quality pasta you can get your hands on as well as a couple different kinds of good cheese. I added some fried onion and garlic to the meat and two tablespoons of mustard to the sauce, gave it a nice zip.

    Really easy and quick to make. Super cheap as well, but it is definitely missing something like previous comment mentioned. Can’t quite put my finger on it. It almost taste floury? Maybe because of the cornstarch I’m not sure. I’ll make it again but I’ll add more to it to make it more flavorful.
