I used light sour cream, lowfat cottage cheese, and reduced the amount of grated cheese for a lower fat meal. Delicious! I'm not a huge ground beef fan, so I halved the amount. Be sure to simmer the meat with the sauce; I forgot, and the meat itself turned out a bit bland. The overall taste of the dish was amazing!

I made this and i was a little disapointed in it at first. however the flavors were amazing on the second day, they really blended well and were great left over. Thanks, i will be making this again!!

This is going into our regular rotation of meals. The taste is outstanding... almost like lasagna but so much easier to make. I left out the bell pepper but will try it with next time. Also, didn't have green onions so just used some diced onion. I don't think it took as much prep time as it says, either. Seemed rather quick to me. Anyway, this is a new family favorite. Thank you!
