      Very tasty and easy to make. I added some fresh chopped fresh basil and a pinch of dried oregano at the end of the heating, just before mixing with the pasta and cheese.

      For how easy this was, it was pretty darn good. The kids thought it tasted like pizza. I used mini farfalle pasta for this. The only thing I added was a little bit of chopped onion when I brown the beef. Thanx for a nice quick meal that kids and adults love!

      Loved this recipe, thank you very much. My kids really enjoyed it - will definitely make this again soon. I used Morningstar Grillers vegetarian hamburger instead of hamburger - very healthy and you cannot tell the difference between hamburger and the grillers.
