Very nice combination of flavors. I really loved the pasta and croutons in this recipe and Dave really enjoyed the meat portion(he's not a big pasta fan). But we really enjoyed the dish as a whole. I altered the cooking method a little. I saute the onions (which I don't know if they were sweet or not but they tasted great) for 20 minutes, then added the mushrooms for 10 minutes then added the beef for the last 10 minutes. I was afraid if I put the meat and the mushrooms in together they would be way too done. I also used Hot Buttered Garlic Noodles for the noodles because of the garlic. This recipe screamed garlic. Other than that I followed the recipe. Thanks for sharing.
I made half this recipe tonight and we both loved it. The chunks of meat, onion, sauce and Swiss cheese were a wonderful combination. I used basil because that's what I had. I will make again but cover with foil until it's bubbly then uncover and add croutons and cheese and bake until cheese is melted. Otherwise, I won't change a thing because it's unique and delicious.
