I grew up eating many home cooked meals —- but at least once a week we would make hamburger helper ( actually I would make it — my parents first allowed me to make easy dishes like this before trying more difficult entrees)

My favorite to make was the lasagna dish — but I thought it was really weird because it did not really taste like lasagna ( you know the really good type with plenty of ricotta and meat)

So I was really happy to try making a homemade version of hamburger helper that is true to lasagna but also REALLY easy to make

I have to put emphasis on easy to make — I love the kitchen but I also love easy to make dishes šŸ™‚ It really comes down to the fact that I love to eat – sooner the food, happier the Sara.

This is everything you need – you might wonder why we are using sugar in the recipe – it is important to add a bit of sugar to your tomato sauce – if you do not the tomato sauce can easily be too acidic – which can sauce tummy problems

I find adding a little bit of sugar will fix this problem

The final cost of the dish is about 8 – $10 — however there was enough for 6 large servings — which my family loves ( and I love it too because I do not have to make lunch the next day šŸ˜‰ )
