    Daniel'sWife's Note:

    This is the only recipe I have from my grandma on my dad's side. My mom got the recipe from her shortly after she met my dad, and she made it often as I was growing up. Now, I make it for my family, and they really enjoy it! The recipe combines some unique flavors and ingredients, which may appear strange. But, I assure you, give it a try and you will likely be surprised at how yummy it is! Serve with veggies, and bread if you like.

      I like this recipe but with a few adjustments to suit our tastes. We don't like our dishes real goopy/creamy so first off I cut the servings in 1/2 but still used 1 1/4 lb of beef/seasonings & 5 oz (vs 3) of noodles. I found it lacked abit on taste so I put an extra Tbsp of chili sauce. This dish was alittle thick still so I'd increase the water (or use broth). To cut some fat/calories I skipped the cheddar cheese also. A very hearty meal that is easy to put together.

      Half my family hates mushrooms and the other have can not stand water chesnuts (not even by accident)! HA. What else would you suggest to replace them? I am sure this extra volume makes the casserole flavor stretch. If I made this dish without the extra volume it may be too rich alone.
