Very Tasty and Easy!!!!! Perfect dish for a busy day, as it is very quick to make. I added about 3 tablespoons of Italian Seasonings for added flavor and it was perfect. Thanks for posting!!!!

This recipe is great! It's quick, easy to make and my 5 year old loves it! I'm going to turn the leftovers into a meat pie. Thanks for sharing!

This was a great base recipe, all of the family really liked it, even my picky 10 yr old son :) I made a couple changes, just personal preferences. I added a good dose of Italian seasoning, Emeril seasoning, and used both fresh garlic and garlic powder. and skipped the corn I put all of the spices in with the meat and onions, placed it all in a bowl when it was done cooking, and used the same pot to boil the noodles. I cooked the noodles until tender, drained the water out, then -re-added the meat mixture back into the pot and cooked it for another few minutes, giving the flavors time to "meld" together. I added in all of the cheese, mixed it around, and cooked for anther few minutes and served it right up! So the entire dish was made on the stove top, I skipped the oven all together.

I agree with the above posts. But I feel this is a great casserole "base" that you have to add your own spices to. I added a lot of chili powder, italian seasoning, and salt. If you follow the recipe verbatim, it tastes like canned tomatoes, corn, and pasta; that's NOT bad, just tweak it with your favorite seasoning and this is a GREAT dish that even my picky eaters loved. Thanks for the great recipe!

This casserole was simple and easy but unlike many casseroles that are simple, the ingredients combine very well for a flavorful dish. I made two changes to the recipe adding two minced cloves of garlic rather than garlic salt and 2 teaspoons of Spike (mixture of herbs and spices). The dish had a beautiful reddish color with the noodles and ground beef poking through the orange cheddar cheese. Thanks for sharing your recipe!

This was very good. Quick, easy, and made from ingredients normally on hand. Would be easy to spice up with different add ins too. I will make this again.

Husband loved, used hamburger seasoning and season salt, 2 cloves of garlic. Will make it again. I would like to try Italian seasoning and mozzarella option too.

This is a good recipe that you can customize for your family's tastes. I added garlic, stewed Italian tomatoes and a commercial seasoning blend from Epicure. I think I will omit the corn next time, as it seemed out of place to me. Thanks for the recipe, I will make this again.

I love this easy dish, and so does all my family! I did add to the top a mix of cheese biscuits! Bisquick, chredded cheddar cheese and a little milk, basically Paula Deens reciepe, maybe just a little wetter, and baked it! Really added something special! Definitely my go to comfort dish!

Great weeknight/family meal!!! I added a packet of good seasons italian dressing mix to the meat, some basil and garlic powder. Next time I'll use mozzarella instead of cheddar just because I think it's more of an italian dish. I'd love to further spice it up, but I want my kids to eat it and they loved it! Thanks, it's a keeper! Oh... also, I used Amy's creamy tomato soup which is a 14oz can and it worked great!
