Homemade Hamburger Helper!

I make this meal once every couple weeks, or whenever I have about a cup of cooked hamburger meat in the fridge or freezer, and only about 20mins to have dinner on the table.

1 cup cooked hamburger meat
1 cup uncooked rotini or elbow macaroni noodles
1 cup spaghetti sauce
1 cup hot water
1/4 t. minced garlic
1/4 t. oregeno
Salt and pepper to taste
A couple handfuls of sharp cheddar cheese

Combine all but cheese in a large skillet. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer 10-12 minutes or until noodles are tender. Remove from heat, sprinkle cheese on top, cover until cheese is melted.

Serve with a green veggie and some bread, and voila! Meal in less than Rachel Ray's 30 minutes!

This has become something we have somewhat regularly...so thanks Kim! :) Sometimes I chop up some fresh basil in it and I think that adds a lot too.
