    Tastes amazing! The crushed red peppers give it a nice flavor and kick. I loved every part of it. Definitely making again.

    Really bland on its own. Came out tasting mostly of the pasta water used to help make the sauce -- ended up adding some more tomato/Worcestershire to give it some flavor.

    It was not good. Bland. It was missing something. A lot of something

    I made this for the meat eaters in my family. They wanted something different using ground beef and my husband use to love Hamburger Helper in his college days. It smelled great cooking! Kids thought it was great husband said it was ok and he usually loves everything I cook. Might have to figure out how to jazz it up a bit since we’re use to eating things with lots of different spices!

    add basil, oregano, 1 cup of beef broth and i used a mixture of cheese, more along the Monterey jack and pepper Jack to bring out different flavors as you eat. I also substituted egg noodles.

    Mozzarella didn’t work out well... it was very stringy and clumped together. Velveeta cheese would work way better which I will do next time.

    It turned out to be very bland that I had to add and put my own spin on it but great idea

    It was bit greasy... I should’ve drained the beef, and then add all the spices. I had to add more seasoning to the beef, it was a bit bland with everything the recipe called for. I added some cumin, some Cholula hot sauce and bit more salt. For more greenery, I added some spinach. Everyone liked it, I just thought it was bit greasy.

    Pretty good for a last minute idea. Will add more sauce in the future. A bit dry.

    It turned out amazing! My little 9-uear old brother, who is extremly picky, loved it. Definitely will make it again. I just didn't add as much Chili flakes as it called for because of my sensitive little brother, lol.

    It wasn't nothing like the picture not even close, i should've followed my first mind which is drain the meat but followed the recipe and it taste greasy. It just isn't a great recipe at all.

    Had to add extra water and seasoning but overall really good!
