Did you know June is National Hamburger Month? Oh yes! And that’s a good thing when you’re a busy mom looking for some yummy meal ideas for the family.
But with summer around the corner, that means more activities and outings planned…making even less time to spend in the kitchen. So I am always looking for easy dinner recipes that work well when I only have so much time for meal planning and cooking.
I love that Hamburger Helper® makes my time preparing dinner so much easier. You literally just add a couple ingredients to the package and you’re good to go! Betty Crocker has a whole section devoted to easy recipes you can make in just a few minutes, so there’s no need to worry if you aren’t feeling overly creative.
One recipe I found particularly tasty was the Four Cheese Lasagna recipe. Since my boys are big cheese-lovers like their mommy and daddy, I thought this was a great choice.
The Four Cheese recipe takes only 20 minutes to cook and makes a great entree to include with your meal.
Here are the simple cooking directions based off the package:
- In a non-stick skillet, brown beef over medium-high heat; drain.
- Stir in hot water, milk, sauce mix and uncooked pasta. Heat to boiling, stirring occasionally.
- Reduce heat. Cover; simmer about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until pasta is tender. Remove from heat; uncover.
It’s literally that easy. Works perfectly if I’m short on time and, yet leaves plenty of room to get creative if I’m looking to add my own flavors and flare!
To make the meal even more nutritious, you can add some veggies like carrots or spinach for a nutritious twist. If you have a picky-eater like I do, you can just puree the veggies so your kids won’t even notice them :).
My boys enjoyed every bite, making no fuss — always a nice surprise these days :)!
