I love having different veggies. I didn't have tomato sauce and used 1 can of tomato soup with a dash of hot sauce! It was so good!! Thanks for sharing

This casserole has everything in the way of ingredients, but I thought it was lacking in flavor. It wasn't "bad", but it needed something to give it some more kick....I thought of stirring in some ketchup, as I couldn't even taste the tomato sauce, but my son douses most main dishes with a liberal dose of ketchup anyway, so I left it for people to add what they wanted to it. I used a lb. of ground round and a half lb. of ground chuck that needed to be used....maybe all chuck would have added more flavor. But anyway.....there was a lot, it was filled the void!! I probably wouldn't make it again, however.

This recipe was not bad, but there are a couple of things that I would do differently. I made 2/3 of recipe, because I had only 1 lb. of meat. I ended up using an entire 15 oz. can of tomato sauce, and still felt that it needed more; the sauce was basically absorbed by all the starchy foods I think. And that is my other issue with this--three starchy foods in one dish just seems too much, although the corn did add a nice pop of flavor. I would omit the pasta, I think, considering the other ingredients in the dish, and increase the tomato sauce by 8 more ounces for a full recipe, which would require an increase in seasonings, too. My husband just didn't care for this particular mix of tastes, so I probably won't make it again.

I didn't care for this dish..... I'm not sure why because it sounds fantastic, but it just didn't taste good to me. Maybe if the potatoes were browned more like a hash rather than boiled. I must say that this is the first Taste of Home recipe I have tried that I didn't care for.
