I came across this recipe 25 years ago, and now it's one of my favorites. Sauerkraut, kielbasa and Swiss cheese combine for a creamy, Reuben-style entree. —Sally Mangel, Bradford, Pennsylvania

"I don't usually give 5 stars but this dish was that good! I did add a touch of Thousand Island type dressing to give it more of a Reuben taste and it was perfect. The sauce mixture with the sausage and noodles. I also loved that it uses sausage instead of corned beef - as I can't find that as often."

"Simple and good. I'm not sure if Reuben Casserole is the best name for it though. Maybe just Polonaise Casserole?"

"Had to try this, sounded like something my bohemian mom and slovakian mom in law served.

A little different, but very tasty and easy to put together, will do again. Doubled the recipe and perfect for 4 big eaters. Also added a can of mushroom. Thanks"

"I doubled the recipe as I had 4 people eating and it turned out perfect! I thought the combo of the soup an sauerkraut would be weird but it was very, very good."

"I have made this twice for my son and myself. I used a whole can of soup, a little more kielbasa and egg noodles. He had several helpings, which is great because he has lately not liked anything I cook! We even ate leftovers another night. A great alternative to the traditional reuben!!"

"Made this on Monday and it was absolutely delicious!! However, I am not a big fan of cream of mushroom so I substituted it with cream of celery. I did not rinse the sauerkraut, I used the juice and I eliminated the bread crumbs on the top. This was superb...I nice change from other meals & very easy to throw together. He has already said I have to make this again."
