"This is definitely a comfort casserole. Hearty and delicious, the only thing I changed was to add 1/2 C of sour cream to the ingredients. This recipe is a keeper!"

"My husband and I liked it, but thought the noodles without cheese on them were a bit bland. I may add a spice or 2 next time, like sage or thyme."

"This was delicious (even my husband said so). I give it 4 stars because it was a little dry. Next time I will add an extra can of soup. I sprinkled some garlic powder in it and didn't have the peppers. Next time I will use the peppers. For anyone who thinks it is bland, just add a little spice, perhaps poultry seasoning, or garlic like I used. Even a pinch of cayenne. But it really wasn't bland, just needed more creaminess."

"This was really good! I've made it a couple of times. We are a family of 3 adults and we eat small portions so this casserole makes 3 meals for us. I freeze in loaf-size portions for Sunday dinner. Stick it in the loaf pan before leaving for church and set the timer for it to bake while we are gone. When we get home we make a salad and dinner is ready. I think I will saute the onions a bit the next time. We like the peppers crunchy, but the onions not so much."

"Good recipe. I added more veggies because I like a decent amount in my dishes and added some 1/2 & 1/2 to make it a bit creamier. Overall a good meal for the family."

"I didn't have creamed corn, so I added a can of regular corn and a can of cheddar cheese soup. Per the other reviews, I also sautéed the veggies first. This was great!!!!!"

"Added peas in step 2. Froz. peas don't need a lot of cooking time. Cut the noodles to 3-1/2 c, Too much pasta when served w/the ever present salad. This did not turn out dry but moist & delish."

"My husband and I had this for dinner tonight and it was really yummy. I made a few minor changes. I sauteed the onions and peppers to soften prior to baking. I used 2 cans of soup. I used frozen peas and carrots and omitted the celery. And, I didn't use reduced fat either! Thanks for this recipe!"
