Healthy Homemade Hamburger Helper
I am not ashamed to say that as a child, I loved Hamburger Helper. I loved it so much that I specifically requested it at a sleepover, a story my family friend has never let me forget. Apparently, I told her that my mother makes this wonderful dish that I thought everyone would love for dinner — the illustrious Hamburger Helper. So when we were presented with the challenge of making a healthy grain recipe, my very first thought was to make my own healthy and frankly, upgraded, version of Hamburger Helper. My first hurdle was the name. Everyone I told had the same (shocking, to me) reaction of semi-disgust and disbelief. But I persevered and I’m glad I did. I used ground turkey, whole-wheat fusilli, grated Parmesan, a touch of heavy cream and butter, and garlic to put together a completely tasty, creamy, satisfying dish. Think of it this way: It’s almost like a turkey Bolognese replacing the tomato stew-like base with creamy cheesy goodness. (Jury’s still out on a new name.) The saltiness of the Parmesan and the slight sweetness of chopped tomatoes worked so nicely alongside the lightness of the lean ground turkey and the creaminess of the whole thing made it feel slightly indulgent while still being healthy. That my boyfriend got up from the table and went for seconds should be testimony enough.

I made this recipe up because while I like Hamburger Helper, I just don't think it's all that healthy.

This dish can be made with any number of vegetables. This meal is as simple as Hamburger Helper, but homemade so more healthy.

Is one box of Hamburger Helper not enough for your family? It's not enough for my family of boys so I created this easy 'stretch' in order to double the servings. My family likes the Salisbury flavor so that's what this recipe is based upon - but it'd go well with other flavors, too.

I really like Hamburger Helper, but it is just better to make it homemade! I really enjoy making my own using the one-skillet method and lots of spices and taste! You can easily add frozen veggies (like I do) at the end to make it healthier and always use low-sodium condensed soups in your recipes so that you have more control over the salt content of your dishes! You can even replace the tomato sauce with BBQ sauce!

I like some of the Hamburger Helpers. I have noticed though, that if made according to the directions on the box, the sauce thickens before the pasta can completely cook and it comes out a little "pasty". The overall flavor tends to have little starchy taste to it, so I make it my own way. With the ones that call for milk, they come out so nice and creamy if made this way. I use half the meat that the ingredients list calls for, because I find that 1 pound tends to be a little too much meat for my taste. You can use a whole pound if you want. You can also use any ground meat in this recipe. I have found that this "flavor" tastes really good with Italian Sausage. It is my favorite. This is really good with green beans or corn. You can use milk instead of the half and half if you are watching your fat and calories. I had to use a prep time in order for 'Zaar editing to accept the recipe, so it, as well as cook time, are approximate. This can be done with any of them. Just make adjustment

I found this online when I was looking for a "lazy" day recipe for when I wanted to make beff stroganoff without all the work. This is pretty simple but it still has that comfort food stroganoff taste. The family likes it too. You could use any pasta you like but the bow tie pasta goes well with it.
