Reviews for Ground Beef Noodle Casserole
"Good flavor, but does not hold well. Eat right away! My family was late to dinner and the noodles became a mushy mess."
"I used organic heavy whipping cream, Brown rice Fusilli and both Parmesan and Mozzarella cheese. Also added some fresh organic baby spinach to it. Very good!"
"My ten-year-old niece really loved this dish. We agree that it tastes like lasagna, but so much easier to prepare. I didn't have cream, so I used regular milk and I didn't have parmesan, so I used mozzarella instead. It was very good, even so. I will definitely be making this again."
