Hi chargeroo,

I think you'll find the following recipe tastier than the packaged
product and much more economical to serve.

Cheeseburger Casserole 

Brown one pound hamburger, drain fat. Add 1 cup water, 1 cup uncooked
macaroni, one 16-oz. can
chopped tomatoes, and 1/2 cup seasoning mix. Simmer covered 20 minutes
until macaroni is tender.
Remove from heat, add 1/2 cup grated cheese.

Hamburger Helper Seasoning Mix 

     1 1/4 tsp. black pepper 
     1 Tbsp. garlic powder 
     2 Tbsp. dried parsley 
     1/3 cup instant onion 
     3 Tbsp. onion powder 
     1 Tbsp. salt 
     1 2/3 cup nonfat dry milk powder 
     3 1/2 Tbsp. beef bouillon granules 
     Yield: 5 -  1/2 cup servings

Here are two other 'Hamburger Helper' variations:

Chili Tomato Macaroni 

Brown one pound hamburger; drain off fat. Add one cup water, one cup
uncooked macaroni, one
16-ounce can chopped tomatoes, one Tbsp. chili powder and 1/2 cup
seasoning mix. Simmer covered
20 minutes or until macaroni is tender. 

Potato Casserole 

Brown one pound hamburger, drain off fat. Add 3/4 cup water, 6 peeled
thinly sliced potatoes, 2/3
cup seasoning mix. Simmer covered 20-30 minutes or until potatoes are
tender. Stir. Uncover and
cook until excess water is evaporated.
