This recipe would be good if the noodles weren't so soggy. This takes away for the meal. I could have just as easily made in on the stove top in a fraction of the time and the noodles would be firm.

This is a great recipe, however, I made many changes. I cooked the hamburg in some Worcestershire sauce for more flavor. I also used crushed tomatoes instead of tomato sauce, and I put a cup of both cheddar and mozzarella. The cooking times are also WAY off. I cooked on low for 3 hours and the pasta turned to mush. I suggest waiting to put the pasta in. There is no need to ever put it on high. ENJOY!

This was too saucy for our taste. Next time I would add more macaroni and more corn as the corn seemed to get lost in the recipe. I followed the recipe as written other then I didn't use the oil to cook the ground beef. I also drained the corn. I used Splenda brown sugar as that is all I buy. I also topped with 2 cups of cheese as we love cheese. This also didn't take as long to cook for me. I cooked an hour on high and two hours on low. This was easy to put together and is made with ingredients I normally have on hand. With the changes I mentioned I think this would be really good.
