MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 19, 2012

Anytime my husband walks in and says something smells good and then says it tastes good, it's a definite five stars. Doubled it and had the other half a three days later.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 3, 2012

Made this for my husband and me - a nice amount for 2 people and it was a nice change from your usual tomato/noodle beef casserole. I didn't have any olives so just added more corn. It was easier than the recipe looks, too!
