The original contributor of this recipe provided the following anecdote:

"This was the first thing I could cook. I learned to make it staying with a friend as I was leaving the Navy. For years I have called it 'Keith's Whats-it.'"




  1. Boil pasta in 4–6 cups salted, oiled water until al dente. Drain.
  2. While pasta is cooking, sprinkle a 10-inch (25 cm) skillet with garlic salt and minced onion, and brown beef.
  3. Add tomato soup and cook a minute or two.
  4. Stir in drained pasta.

Notes, tips and variations

  • May add beans, vary spices, add onions; anything you like!
  • Makes a decent chili base with chili powder added.
  • Good in leftovers, if that is possible.
