Reviews for Hamburger Noodle Bake
"Great comfort food - definately will make again. I didn't have the mixed vegetables so I had to substitute a can of healthy Request vegetable beef soup. I decreased the water to 1 cup. After dinner the reviews were good - My husband ate 2 FULL plates and the kids ate more than the "try it amount". My husband mentioned it tasted tomatoey - I will probably keep the canned vegetable beef soup and add a jar of spaghetti sauce and omit the water altogether. I will also up the Velveeta cheese to 8 ounces. Overall I thought it was great!"
"It was delicious. Will bake on stove top next time."
"My mother use to make a very similar recipe. It is a good, hearty meal and has always been a favorite with my sisters and I."
