Top Review by Neneldae

Very good! This reminds me of our good 'ol midwest hotdish - baked and with cheese on top! I used whole wheat elbow macaroni noodles and omitted the capsicum and chilis. I also used extra parmesan on top. This would be perfect for Vegans to increase the amts of veggies and use vegan cheese!
