Made the recipe almost exactly as written. This was pretty good but not great. The meat layer had very little sauce after cooking for 1 hour, even after I added more tomato sauce than the recipe called for. The noodles would have been dry if I hadn't mixed the mushroom soup with the hot pasta. I think I would make this again, but may need more liquid.
I made it because so many reviewers rated it five. I gotta say, I was dubious. I was wrong. It is yummy. Sons raved. Note: my oven died and I finished it on the stove top. I put a slight layer of sauce on the bottom, layered it as instructed and covered. Lowered the temp to low and left it for about 40 minutes.
Was a bit bland so I added some dry herbs and garlic.
Such a wonderful recipe! We loved it. Due to tastes in my house, I did not use celery, mushrooms, or mushroom soup. Followed the remaining ingredients and added about 2 tbsp garlic and 3 oz of cream cheese. Wonderful! With a little garlic bread, you are good to go. I cooked the original sauce for about an hour, but only baked in the oven for about 15 minutes until cheese was good and melted. Loved this one :)
I made this for a friend tonight and he said it was delicious!
This was good. It was definitely different but a good use for some ground beef.
It's ok. I wish I would have left out the cream of mushroom soup and added more garlic. I think I would have liked it a lot better if I had done that. That being said, it was fast and easy to make, so I will try it again only making those changes and changing my rating ( if I feel it needs to be)
Thank you! I made this today-- I doubled everything except the amount of ground beef. It was SO-O-O good. I was hoping to have some left-over to enjoy again tomorrow, but only have a dab left. I am SAVING this recipe in a SAFE place! : )
