If you're looking for a quick and easy weeknight dinner idea, than it doesn't get much easier than this. That's why I love Taste of Home, they have such a great collection of recipes, and many of them use things I already have on hand.
Oh, and if you're wondering what a 'package of fettuccine and beef-flavored sauce mix' looks like, it's this...
Publix didn't have this brand, but they did have the same thing in their own store brand, so that's why my noodles look a little different in the picture than they do on the package above.
We all really liked this, and I loved how easy it was. There are so many things you could add to this too, to suit you own families tastes.
