The OG Hamburger Helper flavor.
I remember feeling accomplished the first time I combined home browned hamburger with this concoction of spices and pasta.
Gone were the days of delivery pizza I mused at the time.
Tonight I revisited this concoction, using it as a vestibule to share family history and stories from a simpler day so many years ago.
Accompaniments include fried yellow and zucchini squash and egg plant.
Note: I over cooked the pasta, undercooked the squash, and absolutely ruined the eggplant. Briefly, it felt like the good old days.
