Hamburger helper!

True comfort food. I made this a while ago and the hubs loved it. I promised to make it again and forgot :( Just found the recipe again. Quick, simple and delicious!!

I found the recipe here. Did I say how much I love this :)

Homemade hamburger helper 5 servings
this is Simply Filling plus 2pp/serving for the cheese or if doing points plus it would be 11pp/serving. A serving is 1 1/4 cups

1 lb 93% lean ground beef (I used extra lean)
cooking spray
2 1/2 cups fat-free milk
1 1/2 cups hot water
2 cups (8.4 oz) dry whole wheat elbow macaroni
1 Tbsp cornstarch
1 Tbsp chili powder
2 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp sugar
3/4 tsp salt
3/4 tsp paprika
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
pinch crushed red pepper flakes
1 1/2 cups 2% cheddar cheese, shredded
Instructions:
Heat a large skillet sprayed with cooking spray over medium-high heat. Once hot, add the ground beef. With a wooden spoon, break up the meat, browning until cooked through and no longer pink, about 5-6 minutes.
Add the pasta, milk, water, cornstarch, and spices; stir to combine. Bring to a boil and turn the heat down to low and simmer. Cover and cook for 10-12 minutes, or until the pasta is al dente. Add the cheese and stir to combine. Serve immediately.
