    Fabulous! I followed the recipe to a T except during the last 10 minutes of baking time I sprinkled it with Parmesan cheese so it would have a nice golden topping. It turned out great! Thanks for the recipe.

    Yep! It's a keeper. I made it tonight, and it was the first time in a while that nobody fussed about dinner - one way or another. I didn't really change anything, except, I could only get a package of Kluski noodles (those nice Polish ones), so they probably absorbed more liquid than your basic egg noodles. It reminded me of lasagna - Thanks!

    The taste on this was good, but the proportions seemed off. Next time I'll use more sauce ingredients and up the onions and spices to give it a little more kick. Overall it was a success, however, and one to keep.

    This was OK, sorry, it just wasn't a big hit for me. The meat sauce was so thick that I added the same amount of water as tomato paste to make it spreadable. I also thought it tasted bland so I added a teaspoon of Italian seasoning and some garlic. I did eat it all though, I froze half of it in single serving containers and it was a good thing for those nights I didn't feel like cooking.

    This was very good, but, I found that 2 cans of tomato paste plus the ground beef doesn't constitute a "sauce." It was very, very thick and difficult to spread. I will definitely make again, but will likely thin out the tomato paste with some water, or just substitute a jar of good spaghetti sauce. Either way, The flavors were very simple but good. I liked the fact that although the texture was like lasagna, the creamy taste was different with the sour cream. Thanks for the recipe, and I would have rated 5 stars if the sauce was thinner. No worries, though, it's still a keeper.
