Lefty's Cooking Tips
Need more heat? Feel free to use spicy Italian sausage in place of the ground beef.
To add more color, use a combination of red, yellow, orange, green bell peppers.
In 12-inch nonstick skillet, cook beef, mushrooms and bell pepper over medium-high heat 10 to 12 minutes, stirring occasionally, until beef is no longer pink; drain.
Add milk, hot water and sauce mix (from Hamburger Helper™ box); stir to combine. Stir in uncooked pasta (from Hamburger Helper™ box). Heat to boiling, stirring occasionally. Reduce heat; cover and simmer 9 to 11 minutes, stirring occasionally, until pasta is tender and sauce is thick. Remove from heat.
Gently stir in cheese; cover and let stand 2 to 3 minutes or until cheese is melted.
