"This is delicious. I cheated a little bit (to only use one pan) cooked the noodles, drained and rinsed, then used the same saucepan for the meat mixture; put meat into the baking dish, then rinsed out the pan and used it to cook the cheese mixture; put the noodle/cheese on top of the meat. Ended up with only one layer of each, but presentation was good and cleanup was easy. Oh, and I only used a tiny sprinkle of sugar in the meat and none in the cheese. Excellent!"
"Much better than a plain old casserole! We loved the cream cheese and the arrangement of mixtures. Very good flavors, I will definitely make again!"
"Even though this takes two pans and a pyrex casserole, it is not difficult to make and the result was delicious."
"I omitted the green peppers, and this was excellent, definitely a keeper that should be tried.There are two distinct flavors that come together wonderfully.tom, connelly springs nc"
