Creative ways to use for Hamburger Helper that taste better?

silverdoves | Dec 6, 201104:14 PM     43

Somewhere along the way I ended up with several boxes of Hamburger helper in my pantry. When I was younger I used to enjoy them, but now that I'm older and a bit snobbier in my tastes I just can't do it. I don't want to waste it, but any time my husband suggests we make it for dinner to use it up I can't help but wrinkle my nose. I can always think of a more favorable dish to make instead.

So what I'm looking for are creative ways to use my Hamburger Helper without preparing it the conventional way? Something that will add more "Real" flavor and not just the weak, processed taste. I don't mind splitting up the noodles and the spices, I'm not too picky about healthiness (If I need to make something with loads of butter, I'll do it) I just want to make use of these few boxes I have!

Here are the flavors sitting on my shelf:
Cheesy Italian Shells
Four Cheese Lasagna
Double Cheeseburger Macaroni

Any ideas are appreciated!

Thank you :)
