Reviews for Crescent Beef Casserole
"This is really good. I did not put in the green pepper or the tomato puree cause I did not have enough of it to put in. Nonetheless, it still turned out good. All the kids wanted more and ate the zucchini without even knowing it. I will make this again, except I am going to melt cheese on top of it."
"Kid loved it. Surprise."
"One of our favorite dinners!!!! My husband asks me to make this again and again. Tastes so good! I did buy an extra can of crescent rolls to make sure the top was covered."
"wasn't sure about this recipe at first but it was much better than it looked. It was a big hit with everyone and I will definitly make it again."
