This is an easy, flavorful meal to throw together on the weeknights. You can make it as spicy, or not, as you'd like.

This dish is a great meal to throw together on a busy weeknight. Everyone in the family will love this. It's cheesy and full of so much flavor. The seasonings along with the fresh onions make the meat mixture super yummy. The noodles, with Jenni's cheese mixture, is nice and creamy. It's delicious! The Test Kitchen
