My husband and I did not like this recipe enough to make it again. Too salty from all the soy sauce and really just tasted like a hamburger helper.

I am rating this three stars because my husband loved it, my daughter hated it and I liked it, with the exception that the soy sauce was overpowering in the dish. 1/2 cup seemed like way too much. If I ever were to make this again for my husband, I would cut the amount of soy sauce in half. Thanks for sharing.

This was the best casserole. My husband and I absolutely loved it. It's way better than your usually hamburger casserole.
