Family loved this!! The only thing i substituted was diced tomatoes for the sliced; 'cause toms are pretty expensive now. The diced toms were great! No added sodium...Why we would not use the Hamb. Helper is beyond me-

I have not made this yet but it looks delicious to me. If u r afraid of the sodium, u can always try to cut it down a bit. I will try it as soon as i can get to the store and get the ingredients.

to salty702...have you tried what you suggested? I'd like something a little healthier but this tip is only good if you've tried it! Please let me know...thanks

To phoebe76 - OBVIOUSLY you did not try the recipe BUT just HAD to tell everyone that you would not make it because of the sodium content. Man, wish I had someone like you to always tell me stuff like that - NOT!!!!! People stick to reviewing the recipe IF you make it please. We don't need a MOMMY to tell us about the BIG, BAD sodium, fat, calories, etc.

I know this recipe is quicker, but I'd like to make some suggestions: Leave out the milk, most of the water, and the Hamburger Helper.
I'd substitute some kind of instant taco, or enchilada seasoning and shredded cheddar and pepper jack for the slices.
Cook the dry pasta while the sauce is being made and fold it into the sauce when it's done. Top with shredded cheese and pop it into a 300 degree oven until the cheese is melted the way you like it.
Takes longer, but it tastes fresher and overall it costs less.

Ooops, meant to say milligrams of sodium.

Have not made and won't. WAY too many grams of sodium!!!

in place of the bacon I would use a low fat breakfast sausage
