MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 25, 2015

"I added a 23.9 ounce jar of spaghetti sauce with sausage instead of a 14 ounce jar without meat, dried basil and garlic powder to the meat mixture. I also put Parmesan cheese on top of the mozzarella cheese. All other ingredients remained the same. Very good. Next time I will add the Parmesan cheese and parsley to the spaghetti mixture as a previous review suggested."

"This was really good and even better, it was so easy to make. I didn't have the green pepper but it didn't deter from the deliciousness.

My daughter came out of her room and said, "Mom, you have my permission to make this again!" and proceeded to have a second helping."

"I have made a very similar recipe like this for years. What my recipe calls for is to omit the milk and add a 1/2 cup of Parmesan cheese, a TBS of garlic powder and a TBS of dried parsley flakes to the egg/noodle mixture then spread a layer (about a cup) of sour cream between the noodles and tomato/beef mixture. It adds a great flavor and texture to the dish."
