MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 18, 2014

"Delicious! Used 2lbs of ground beef...also substituted a jar of tomato basil marinara instead of canned tomato sauce and doubled the green onions. The whole family gave it thumbs up. Will definitely make again!"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 11, 2014

"Pretty good & simple to make. Next time I may try adding salsa and black olives, or using a mix of sausage and hamburger."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 6, 2014

"This is filling. That is all the good I can say about it. It is tasteless. If you want pasta, you'd be better off frying up some hamburger and adding it to Kraft Mac & Cheese, or using a box of Hamburger Helper. With cheese as expensive as it is, don't waste it on this tasteless dish. We have a lot of leftovers which I hope to entice people to eat by adding jarred spaghetti sauce. It was a pain to make, too--lots of dirty pans. If you're looking for a yummy hamburger noodle dish, keep looking!"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 18, 2014

"This casserole is very easy and taste like a hamburger. I have made this many times and it is easy to throw together for my family."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 6, 2014

"I have fixed this recipe twice and my husband and I agree it is a 'keeper'. However, I agree with one other review...it is a little bland. I think I will try substituting 24 ozs. of spaghetti sauce for the tomato sauce the next time I make it."
