Gunk on Noodles
This one has a cute story behind the name - according to the person who submitted the recipe on AllRecipes.com "My mother came up with this wonderfully simple dish on a snowy Michigan night when all she had on hand was a pound of ground beef. My father and I just loved it, and when Dad asked her what it was called she laughed and said 'Gunk on Noodles.' The silly name stuck, and I've been making it for my family for 25 years. A quick meal made with items we all have on hand."
This was a very tasty meal that we all enjoyed! We agreed that the meat mixture tastes a lot like a sloppy joe mixture, and I thought it worked well on the noodles. Perhaps a sprinkling of cheddar or parmesan cheese on top might be a nice touch!
Simple, quick, easy, and tasty - perfect for a week night meal to fill you and your family up. I followed the recipe exactly and thought the flavor was very nice - but you can always taste test and adjust seasonings as needed.
