Hungarian Goulash Casserole

Top Review by smellyvegetarian

This was good! I followed the advice of a previous reviewer and browned the meat and mushrooms then added the soup, milk, etc., following up with the corn starch mix. I was short on sour cream, so I ended up mixing the corn starch into 1/4 c of the milk. I also mixed the sauce into the noodles before baking, mostly b/c I didn't do a very good job of pouring it evenly :). Turned out good, needed a bit of more salt but that could be b/c I used the reduced fat low sodium cream of celery soup. I also used skim milk with no problems. Thanks for a good recipe!
