Good 1 dish meal for potlucks--very versatile--you can use your imagination and add many other ingredients to make it different. I often add mushrooms and do with bread crumbs.

I don't like hamburger, so I made it in a rectangle baking pan, and only put the hamburger on my husband's half. We both loved it. Good reheated.

It was good but I agree that it could use a little more flavor. I added mushrooms to mine and Italian seasoing to the sauce. Next time I will I think I will add spinach and more seasoning. Maybe italian sausage?
