    Let me add my thanks! I love when we help ourselves, when Big Business leaves us out in the cold. One important thing, though:

    DON’T SKIP the stir!!!! In fact, I tend to stir the first time after around 3 minutes, (when it’s then pasta pie crust lol) and then get the other stir(s) in later.

    I sliced my potatoes thin lengthwise and browned them on my Foreman Grill. No stove or oven in my dorm room. :*( Thanks for the microwave tips, it’ll be a lifesaver.

    Thank you so much for your effort!!!! I am very grateful – particularly when it is so hot & humid – don’t want to turn on the stove.

    Many, many thanks from a United States Navy sailor. As a teenager cooking for my 4 younger siblings, hamburger helpers were always my go to meals. Now, very far from home and not senior enough to have a place of my own and not particularly found of galley food, I am glad I can make a piece of home in my little barracks room.

    Thanks for the Tuna Fettaccine Alfredo instructions. I am a microwave mommy, using these instructions helps me a lot as I am basically a lazy cook! Many thanks!

    Thanks so much for this, I could not find the way to do these in the microwave once it was taken off the box. Betty Crocker said they changed the recipe which is not true! Again, thanks!!!

    I also used some canned chicken in the tuna pasta, it was just as good, use in the creamy broocli too! This note vrom Cheryl Nagy

    They took the microwave instructions off the box so people will buy the microwave singles – people will assume it’s not microwavable!

    I recently divecserod that I’m allergic to milk, which means I will be forced to make my own popcorn from here on out Hopefully I can find dairy-free butter so I can use your recipe! Thanks so much for sharing!

    Hey bud, thanks for putting this page up for us. I wanted to let you know that I fix the cheesy tuna pasta with 2 cups of water, 1 cup of milk, 2 tablespoons of butter, 1 -5oz can of tuna (or a person could do 2 cans), and the stuff in the box. I mix the powder a little at a time with the milk so it’s not clumpy, I also melt the butter first and heat up the water for a few minutes. After all of the ingredients are together in an appropriate size bowl (with room for stiring) I pop it in the microwave, and cover, for about 12 minutes stirring every three minutes so it doesn’t get cruddy around the edge. Depending on the wattage it could take less but I wouldn’t go longer.

    I am so glad that I found this site. I am making the Cheesy Italian Shells right now. I just want you to know that there is no topping packet in the box. Just in case you wanted to edit the recipe above. But otherwise so glad that you made this site!

    Thank you so much, I too miss microwave directions. The tuna helper is a great travel meal, as many hotels have microwaves. I sometimes add peas and a bit more water if i happen to have them.

    For the Bacon Cheeseburger H.H., use the same recipe as Cheeseburger Macaroni, except use 1 1/4 cups boiling water and 1 1/2 cups milk. I just tried it and it came out fine!
