Love this. I didn’t have all the ingredients but added more tomatoes, red onions, garlic, and mushrooms. I didn’t have cheddar cheese so I just added parmesan and mozzarella. Highly recommend and easy to modify!!
Too many tomatoes. Needed garlic. Was basically tasteless, other than the tomatoes.
Made this just as instructed, I loved it, my sister loved it. Really tasty and satisfying. Great recipe!
Just like it said--"new favorite ground beef casserole." I made it when I was having two friends over and all of us loved it. I followed the directions exactly except that my diced tomatoes were plain so I just added an extra half teaspoon of Italian seasoning. Another time, I might add some green peppers. It makes a lot (and is very filling) but reheats very well. Just like lasagna, almost better when reheated! I just reheated the amount I wanted in the microwave. Super recipe!
I have not even tried this, but made it for two families (totally against my rules of trying first). Both want the recipe and the kids wanted to take it for their lunch to school the next day!!!
My family loved this! My reluctant meat eaters gobbled it down.
I made very few changes in comparison to other recipes I have used.
I used all lactose free ingredients (green valley brand sour cream and cream cheese). I substituted penne for the egg noodles (more robust).I added parmesan to the noodle mixture plus a sprinkle of salt (and forgot the green onions which I will try to remember next time). I added one onion diced, one green pepper diced, and 2 Tbsp minced garlic to the pan with olive oil. Sautéed for 3 minutes then added the ground beef and followed the rest off the recipe plus 1 whole tsp of Italian seasoning instead of a half tsp. Also used more cheese on top plus fresh basil finely chopped.
We thought about just mixing the meat sauce into the noodle mix, but no one had a problem with the layered method.
Thank you for this recipe!
This did taste a bit like lasagna, and since I like lasagna, that's a good thing. I used more cream cheese than the recipe called for (3 oz?), but other than that I stayed true to the recipe. Just had 1 square, and am looking forward to having it for leftovers tomorrow.
This recipe is VERY similary to the "ranchero bake" casserole I used to make for my stepsons that I raised. THEY LOVED THIS CASSEROLE and would ask for it frequently -- and always requested that I bring it to Boy Scout 'Court of Honor' potlucks (which I would make four of these casseroles). The leftovers are excellent, too.
Great taste, a bit like lasagna and also like a warm taco because of the sour cream and tomato chilis
Loved this recipe. Wasn't sure about trying it because there were no reviews. The ingredients sounded like it would make a great dish and I sure am glad I gave it a try. My husband loved it too! It was kind of like lasagna but just enough different to enjoy a new casserole. Definitely will make again.
