A great kid and adult friendly recipe. My 1 year old ate his little heart out. I did forget to put the cheese on top, but I honestly didn't miss it. Thank you for sharing this recipe.

I made this years ago many times as written, but had not made it in awhile. This time I used 1 lb of Italian sausage and a 1/2 lb lean beef. I then used Newman's Own Sockarooni sauce. Other than that, no changes. Everyone loved it!

Great casserole to quickly get on the table. I used half the cheese called for. Thanks for a great meal!
