"What a great meal. I used fine Inn Maid noodles and they were great in kittencal's dish. My husband loved this and so did I. No surprise, her recipes are always good. I'm going to try this one out on 3 grandchildren tonight. keep shaing Kittencal."
"Very tasty casserole. Your recipes are always the BEST!! Will make this again."
"This casserole was really great, the sweet and spicy flavor hit the spot. I halved it with great success. Since I didn't want half a can of tomato soup and sauce laying around I just used the whole can of soup and omitted the sauce. Also left out the green peppers and pimentos as a personal preference but it was still yummy and easy to put together. I used some fresh mushrooms I had and could have added more since they shrink more than canned."
"Kittencal, this was a delicious casserole. The cream corn added such a wonderful sweet flavor. I was going to halve the recipe because there are only two of us, but in the middle of making the sauce I realized it wasn't halved. Oh well, I will have wonderful lunches to come. I will freeze the leftover in smaller containers. So the only thing I changed in the recipe was to leave out the jalapeno peppers, cause DD would of found it too hot spicy, and I used red peppers because that is what was in the fridge that needed to be used. I also used half mozzarella and half cheddar which was a nice blend. I did use the 8 oz of medium egg noodles and found it was perfect for the amount of sauce. We both really enjoyed this tremendously....another fantastic recipe, thank you Kittencal"
"This is a very filling casserole. I did add about 1/2 cup frozen whole kernel corn. The other thing I did was cook the whole 12 ounce bag of noodles. I was glad I did as there is so much meat mixture that 4 more ounces of noodles helped even out things. I will make this again. Thank you for posting. Made for *1 2 3 Hit Wonders* game 2007"
"My mom never cared for casseroles so they are not part of my childhood memories. Despite that, when I crave comfort food, I often find myself looking for one. Tagged this knowing that I could make it fit my low fat diet and still have a great meal, and indeed it exceeded my expectations. I made three changes which are quite standard for my kitchen 1) replacing the ground beef with Morningstar Farms beef crumbles, 2) using whole wheat noodles and 3) using a reduced fat cheddar/mozzarella combination on top. Given the wonderful flavors of the sauce and other components dinner was superb. The sauce has a great contrast of sweet (the peppers, corn and soup) balanced out by the savory flavors from the garlic, jalapenos, mustard and chili powder. It was just delicious and yielded big, stick-to-your-ribs portions. My one other comment was that my casserole was bubbling hot in about 30 minutes so definitely watch for doneness. Thanks!"
"Yuuuuuuummmmmmy!! Dh isn't fond of casseroles but I needed something I could pop in the oven and go and decided this would be the pick of the day. Well, the family and especially DH LOVED it!! He'll be happy to have more......good thing he could recognize the creamed corn in it! hehe I made as is except used a spiral noodle and didn't put enought jalapeno in it - we couldn't taste it at all so next time will add more. It makes a panfull so making this for a group would be great. So glad I tried this one, now I have a one-dish meal that DH likes."
"Kittencal: OUTSTANDING recipe! Made this for my family tonight and it was a big hit! Easy and economical! Thanks for sharing such a great recipe!"
