Season to your own taste.

Sounds like an odd mix but why not if you like ground beef and macaroni. I have always been a firm believer that the best recipes are ones where you simply make them up with the ingredients you like bets. Most of my recipes have developed from simply using up left over’s or adding things together to see how they worked. yes you get the odd horrible mistake but mostly they taste great and soon become firm favourites in our home.

This recipe sounds so easy and Quick too, I don’t think anyone would have trouble making it and would recommend it for first time students away from home for the first time.  A much better option than beans on toast and packet noodles which my nephew seemed to think was cooking when he first went to college. Something like this would keep him going for much longer and he could make large batches of it to use for other meals.

I use the quorn mince for a meat substitute but a cheaper option is soya or even green lentils which can have a meaty quality about them when added to recipes. Just because I’m a vegetarian doesn’t mean I have to miss out on these great frugal recipes you keep sending. Thanks again for submitting this recipe.
