Only five ingredients are needed (and one of them is hot water!) in this super-simple skillet Hamburger Helper® dinner mix family favorite.

Ingredients

1
pound lean ground beef
1
package Hamburger Helper™ beef pasta
3 2/3
cups hot water
2
cups frozen cut green beans
1/4
cup grated Parmesan cheese, if desired

Directions

  • 1 Brown beef in 10-inch skillet over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally; drain.
  • 2 Stir in uncooked Pasta, Sauce Mix, hot water and beans. Heat to boiling, stirring occasionally. Reduce heat; cover and simmer about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until beans are tender.
  • 3 Remove from heat; cover and let stand about 5 minutes or until sauce is as thick as you'd like, (sauce will thicken as it stands). Sprinkle with cheese.

Expert Tips

The fat content of ground beef depends on the cut of meat it came from. Regular ground beef—made from less-expensive cuts—contains up to 30 percent fat. Moderately priced ground chuck contains just enough fat to give it flavor and make it juicy. The leanest (around 5 percent fat) is the most expensive and is made from round and sirloin cuts.

Of course you can use French-fried onions instead of the seasoned croutons!
