    This is a very economical dish, but it is very tasty! Served with some bread and possibly a salad, you could have a "poor man's dinner party"!

      A bit of a mixed review at our house which averages out to 4*. I was trying to use up some pantry items and this worked out great. The only change I made was to omit the shortening as I used a non-stick skillet and didn't feel it was necessary. The kids would have liked more cheese. A nice recipe that I will make again. Thx breezermom.

      We really enjoyed this comforting cold-weather dish! The flavours blended together very nicely. I personally would have prefered more mushroom soup in the mushroom soup- canned tomato ratio so would use more soup or less canned tomatoes next time. But there will definitely be a next time!

      Wasn't sure how this would go over, but everyone loved it! It was creamy and flavorful; even got everyone to eat the tomatoes! I used a deep frying pan to brown/simmer the beef so there was room to mix the noodles, cheese and soup in, then just poured all into the casserole. Made for Everyday Holiday.
