"Hamburger Helper has never tasted so good! For this use only the Cheeseburger Macaroni flavor. I sometimes save the pasta packet for another use and use penne pasta instead but the the choice is yours! Serve this with crusty rolls on the side or garlic bread." "

Step by Step Method

Step 1

Chop the bacon into small pieces then fry in a large skillet until crisp; remove to a plate (you can drain fat but leave some in the skillet). To the skillet add in ground beef with onions and bell pepper; cook unto no longer pink, drain fat. Add in garlic and dried chili flakes (if using) and cook the beef over medium heat until browned (this might take about 15 minutes). Season with seasoned salt and black pepper.

Step 2

Return the chopped cooked bacon back to the skillet, then add in the stewed tomatoes with juice, undiluted tomato soup; mix and bring to a simmer over medium heat. Add in only the seasoning pouch (you will boil the macaroni separately) mix and simmer uncovered over medium-low heat for 45 minutes to 1 hour, stirring occasionally -- If you prefer a thinner sauce then add in water or beef broth and simmer for another 10-15 minutes.

Step 3

Boil the macaroni pasta in a separate pot then add/mix into the sauce mixture after the 40 minutes of cooking. Season with more salt and pepper if desired, then mix in grated cheddar cheese until melted. Ladle in bowls then sprinkle more cheddar cheese on top. Delicious!
