Stretching a Hamburger Helper Meal With Spaghetti

I was fixing some Beef Hamburger Helper the other night and found that I was having extra people for dinner. I fixed it as directed on the package. When the beef was browning, I took a handful of spaghetti, broke it in half and boiled it until done; drained it and set aside.


When the Hamburger Helper was all done, I put the cooked spaghetti in with it. It made a whole lot more and tasted great! A good way to stretch the meals in these hard to make ends meet time.

Stretching a Hamburger Helper Meal With Spaghetti

This a great idea. I add basic pasta, potato or plain rice to lots of prepackaged meals. It does make more servings. But more important it cuts down on the sodium per serving. Many of these meals have way too much salt. (10/30/2009)
