"I'm not a big fan of chicken noodle soup but the rest of the family is. I am a fan,however, to casseroles. When I saw this I had to give it a try. I loved it, as well as my husband and kids! The cheese and peppers and onions definitely make this recipe."

"I took the advice of other posts, and every one asked for 2nds!! I used 2 cans of cream of mushroom soup, used 2/3 cup red pepper and left out the green pepper. I also added 4 oz of sour cream and 1/2 Cup of skim milk. Used 3/4 Cup of Colby Jack and 3/4 Cup of Sharp cheddar inside the casserole, and used about 1/3 of Cup each cheese on top. I also used wide egg noodles. I was asked for the recipe with my tweaks--definitely a "comfort" food!"

"Made this recipe exactly how it is written, and when my husband took his first bite he looked at me dismayed and said "you don't ever have to make this again!" Lacks flavor. This recipe was a total waste of ingredients."

"Can't anyone make a wonderful casserole without CHEESE!!!! Seems like each and every casserole has a ton of cheese. I have nothing against cheese but every dish seems to taste the same."

"This is a wonderful, comforting casserole dish to have on a cold evening. After the first time I made it I began adding 1/2 cup milk to the soup mixture so it wouldn't be as dry and a chopped celery rib because we like celery. My husband and kids love it.

To cindihartline: if you want diet food, go to another site, It's obvious you haven't made this recipe and that's what a review is all about. You make it, then tell us your experience with it and what you think about it."

"Fearing it would be dry, I added 1 additional can of cream of chicken soup and 1/2 cup sour cream, and that kept it nice and moist during baking. I also added 1 tsp garlic powder and some extra cheese. The results were very yummy. Easily a good comfort food dish--and the hubby loved it."

"I just made this and skipped the belle peppers since I'm not a fan. Also used only sharp cheddar and macaroni noodles cause that's all I had on hand. Amazing. I think I will make it the same way every time now but puree the onions since my hubby and teen son don't enjoy crunching on anything. "

"I initially made this for one of my husband's co-workers whose wife was in the hospital. I wanted something that looked as though it would freeze and reheat well. It smelled so good when i was cooking it for him, I knew I had to make it for us. My husband and I both loved it. This is the first dish in a long time that I can remember my husband asking if he could take the leftovers to work for lunch the next day. Then, he came home and wanted to know if he could have the leftovers for dinner, too! Unfortunately, I had already eaten the last of it for lunch myself! This is a really good, simple recipe! It will definitely go into our regular rotation."
