Homemade Hamburger Helper

I try really, really hard not to buy processed foods.  Sometimes, I just can't help craving Three Cheese Hamburger Helper.  Why?  Growing up we had it several times a month (if not at least once a week).  To make it healthier my mom added veggies.  Such a comfort food for me, but as an adult I cringe at all the additives so I set out to make my own from scratch!

Seriously delicious!  The hubby ate all of it that night and requested that I make it again the next night!

{Brown beef}

{Add veggies of your choice}

{Add cream cheese and milk to make sauce}

{This pasta is veggie pasta--how sneaky am I?}

{Sauce is made}

{Add hot, cooked noodles}

 {Stir in pasta which will absorb a good amount of sauce in it's spirals}

I will take this time to apologize for being MIA--it's been crazy busy at work, and I didn't have the time to post anything (I did have these ready I promise!).  Anyway, life is returning to normal so it's back to the regular schedule!
