1First of all, you need to prepare a large skillet and heat with ground beef on it. Cook the beef until it is cooked or until the color turns brown. Then, when it is done, you need to drain the excess fat before you continue adding some more remaining ingredients to combine.

4Cook the mixture until it gets boiled. Then, lower the heat into low-medium to simmer for around 5 to 7 minutes and don’t forget to place the lid to cover the skillet. After that, add the remaining water to the mixture and let it simmer again for additional 5 minutes until the pasta gets tender.
5When it is done, you may turn the heat off and prepare for the serving. Before serving, you need to sprinkle the cheese on top of your dish and enjoy it with the topping of your choice. You may choose one of them or use all of them or even use other kinds of your favorite toppings.
