    Leslie in Texas's Note:

    I've been making this casserole since my boys were young--it's one of their favorites. It's a great budget dish and perfect for when you need your TexMex "fix"! It also freezes well--I usually make it in two smaller casseroles; one for dinner tonight and one to freeze for later!

      Very good hot dish for a cold winter night. I shredded a couple of small carrots and added them with the onion and garlic (got to sneak some veggies in now and then). I used red beans (personal preference). My pasta was spiral twist macaroni. I like it for casseroles because it captures the sauce and holds it in the grooves. I only cook my pasta half done before adding it to casseroles because I find it gets too mushy after additional baking otherwise. I topped it off with shredded cheddar cheese (didn't have Monterey Jack on hand). This is a great 'throw together' recipe which uses ingredients most people would already have in the pantry and it lends itself well to minor substitutions. Thanks Leslie!

      Made this last night for my girlfriend and I and it is still as good as I remember as a kid. Crystal loved it as well! Thanks Mom!

      Great variation on the Texas goulash theme! I used three 3 14 1/2 cans for the 35 ounce can of diced tomatoes, ready minced refrigerator garlic and a 4 cheese Mexican cheese blend. I also probably used 4-5 cups of cheese on top. It was awesome! This makes two 9 x 13 pans or one 6 quart pan. I used one deep rectangle baker that is probably 5-6 quarts and it filled it nicely to the top. Leslie, thanks for a great recipe! This is a perfect large crowd dish!
