Better than Hamburger Helper

Made this one up with the help of Mr. Meatatarian and his buddy J.

1 lb ground beef

1 lb pasta (I used rigatoni)

1/3 cup flour

4 T butter

2 cups milk

2+ cups cheese

Melt the butter and add the flour to make a roux. Cook for a few minutes to get the raw flour taste off. Whisk in the milk and bring to a boil. Remove from heat and add cheese

Meanwhile, boil the pasta in lightly salted water and brown the ground beef.

Combine it all in a giant bowl and serve with a sprinkle of garlic salt. J and I also added steamed broccoli to our bowls. J also suggests paprika, but we didn’t have any on hand!
