The flavour of this dish was mild, yet tasty. I made it for my husband and 2 year old, who gobbled it up. I used whole wheat pasta instead of egg noodles since that was what I had on hand. I also topped it with a little bit of grated parmesan cheese. The only thing I was disappointed in was that the sauce was really runny. I think maybe using more flour would be beneficial since we ended up with a pool of sauce at the bottom of the baking dish.
