I absolutely LOVE this recipe. It is the ultimate in comfort food for me and the flavors blend so well. I was worried there wouldn't be enough liquid and it would be dry after baking, but it wasn't a problem. I do think I'll use 2 cans of tomatoes next time. Didn't have a bowl big enough, so I just mixed everything right in the pan then popped it in the oven. I needed to add salt, but DH thought it was fine as is. This is a keeper!!

Very good recipe; I cut it in half for my husband and me. Decided to use tomato sauce instead of stewed tomatoes- an 8 oz. can worked well for our smaller dish. For more flavor, I added about a half cup of bottled BBQ sauce- turned out delicious!

Simple, not too flavorful, but just enough...with an added dolop of sour cream. Rather low in fat which gives it it's edge.
