We enjoyed this very much. I substituted ground turkey for the beef, fresh spinach leaves for the frozen, cream of mushroom soup instead of celery (because that is what I had on hand), and added some crumbled feta cheese prior to baking, for a little extra flavor boost. Thanks for posting this keeper of a recipe!
This was terrific mid week meal - enjoyed by all and very easy to do - my only alteration was using cream of mushroom soup. It was a great change from putting beef mince with pasta and I surely welcomed that so thank you for posting.
I just happened on this recipe and had the ingredients so I made it. I followed the suggestions from the other reviewers and used fresh spinach. I also used fresh mushrooms(8 oz sliced), and added them in the second step. Further, I used cream of mushroom soup and omitted the cheese in the casserole, but did sprinkle the top during baking. This was a very easy and delicious dish, and a bit different from the run-of-the-mill ground beef casseroles. Thanks for posting it. I have added it to my ground beef cookbook and will be using it, often....Lee
This is a delicious and easy dish to prepare,and my whole family loved it,and believe me, that's unusual.My 2 yr. old even said, and I quote,"This is lishus" his word for delicious.
Good, but was missing something. Needs a little more flavor.
