This recipe is one of my mom's specialties. It's a hearty main dish that gets requested time and time again. The from-scratch sauce makes each cheesy slice extra flavorful and softer-textured than other versions.—Kim Orr, West Grove, Pennsylvania

"This is pretty good in my opinion. Everyone in the family loves it. It's my husband's request when he comes home from a week of travelling and craves home cooking."

"This was delicious. I used buffalo meat, which worked out well. I, too, ran short of sauce, but just loaded up on the cheese and used one less layer of noodles and it did not seem to make a difference. My husband loved it. It is a very easy recipe to follow as well and does not take too long to make."
