This recipe was a sort of 'mock' lasagne. I reduced the amount of tomato's by 8 oz because my husband is sensitive to them. I added a can of olives, and some parmessan cheese. I added some shredded jack cheese in with the meat, onions, etc. Then I cooked the casserole for 20 minutes, then added slices of White American cheese on the top, and cooked it for an additional 10 minutes so the cheese could melt. All in all, it passed the 'family test'. Thank you! Lea Evans
This dish was suprisingly and pleasantly alot more tastey then the finished dish appeared to be. It was a great hit with the family - and with 3 boys (age range from 4 to 13) that is quite an accomplishment!!
It was ok.The cheese soup didn't seem to add much flavor.I will try and different soup next time and stir cheese into the cassarol as well as on top.
My family loved it! It isn't the most "gourmet" looking thing, but it was very yummy. I might add a couple squirts of tabasco to give it a little kick. Very good.
I made this last night for dinner for the family. It was extremely easy to make and tasted great. This is definitely becoming a family favorite. I made the incorrect assumption that there would be enough left over for me to bring some to work for lunch today. I didn't realize how much my brother could eat until I watched him go back for 3rds.
Sounded a lot like my "Hamburger and Macaroni Bake" and even though my family likes that recipe a lot, I am always willing to try new recipes in search of something better. Although a bit different in ingredients, they were equally good. When I asked my kids which one they wanted me to fix from now on they said "both". It was a belly buster--it made a large quantity and they all went back for seconds!
We thought this recipe was better then some of the other reviews that were given. But I fixed it using 12 ozs of REAL CHEDDER CHEESE grated.
I tried the casserole with broccoli cheese soup. I think it added to the recipe.
This was a disappointment. We have always made a similar recipe but without the cheese soup. With real cheese on top instead.
This definately feeds more than six. It was very easy to make, the taste was okay, filling, you can easily add any other ingredients you like. So overall it's a good recipe, you just need to add more ingredients to add more flavor.
