Stovetop Beef and Shells
Total TimePrep/Total Time: 30 min.
Quick and easy. Tasty too. The family ate it up. As some suggested, I added bell pepper and corn. I also used oregano, basil, and Adobe seasoning on the meat.
I made this meal and it was delicious. However, I made a couple alterations to the recipe. I used less onion than recommended, and 2 cloves of garlic. I also added garlic powder and only 1/2 teaspoon of sugar. I changed the amount of sugar because the tomato sauce was almost sweet.
Simple, easy to make, and tasty!
I did not have medium pasta shells, so I used Trio Italiano pasta (penne, rotini and shells), 14.5-oz. DICED tomatoes and Italian-style tomato sauce as I didn't have crushed tomatoes OR regular tomato sauce! This dish is delicious and I'm glad I tried the recipe. delowenstein, Volunteer Field Editor
I made this recipe for the first time tonight, and my husband and I both enjoyed it very much. I only gave it four stars though because I didn't follow the recipe exactly. The changes i made were, a can of undiluted tomato soup, and i added a can of mexican corn. Instead of a clove of garlic, added granulated garlic. I served a salad and french bread with this and it went perfectly. There is plenty left to have again tomorrow night This recipe will be a keeper in my home.
Haven't tried this so my rating is not real but I have to say this is NOT American Chop Suey (and I live in R.I.) since that has green peppers in it and uses elbows not shells.
I added a little more garlic and some fresh parsley. Very tasty!

Love this recipe. So quick and easy. Since we are not big meat eaters I use only 1/2 lb. ground beef and add more pasta. I make a pound of pasta and add to meat mixture the amount of cooked pasta that looks good to me. I also substitute 1 tsp basil, 1/2 tsp oregano, & 1/2 tsp of thyme for the sugar, pepper and salt. So quick and so good!
Just like hamburger helper but much healthier. This recipe made our make-again list!
