"Very good and quick. It is lacking some flavor which can be fixed with herbs. I served mine over spaghetti squash and was able to up the serving size to a full cup for less calories."

"This is delicious! Instead of ground beef, I used John Soules Foods Beef Fajitas frozen meat (it's seasoned, tenderized strips of beef), but that was the only substitute I made. It's easy and delicious. I'm putting this in my recipe book and will use it again and again."

"I used extra lean ground turkey in this and it was wonderful. Easy to make (even after getting home late from work) and very comforting.  This recipe even heats up well for lunch the next day (stored the stroganoff and the noodles in the same container in the fridge).
