Good. Added an extra egg, just because. Sauteed onion, swirled around chopped ham in that before I added it to the noodles. Yummy, but made us want quiche. Thanks for sharing.

Very tasty! My children liked this, as did my husband. I did quadruple the recipe (there are 7 of us) and we had just a bit left over. Of course, a few of my kids had multiple helpings...

My family enjoyed this casserole. It definitely tastes like a breakfast or brunch dish. It does have much flavor and it's quite easy to put together. Oh, I did use milk instead of cream.
