I love this simple, basic, main dish. Including the prep time and the actual minutes of baking this casserole, it can be prepared within an hour.

Like it was said this is a very basic simple casserole dish. We all loved it. I used gound chicken instead of beef. I assembled it the night before so I cooked it a little longer than the recipe stated. Great recipe. Thanks

This was a very tasty dish. Quick and easy to make with nice results. Reminded me of a homemade hamburger helper. The sauce covered the noodles perfectly. It was very flavorful. Thanks for sharing. Made for What's on the Menu? Tag Game.

DH and I liked this lots!!! Easy to make ahead and bake when you are ready. Leftovers are better than the first day!! The only change I made was to use home canned tomatoes (1 1/2 cups) in place of tomato soup, as I didn't have any on hand. Great recipe!
