"Very good. Followed recipe but found it way too salty. Will reduce or eliminate the salt next time and keep the garlic and celery salts."

"My family loves this recipe! I have even taken this dish to work and had coworkers ask me for the recipe. What a great dish."

"This was super good, even though I ran short of some of the ingredients! I used two cans of diced tomatoes instead of stewed tomatoes, more ground beef than the recipe called for, and used mozzarella cheese, because it's what I had on hand! I also omitted the salt. Next time I will hope to try with cheddar cheese; I'm sure it will be just as good if not better! I might have added some more rice too, to balance out the amount of ground beef. I served with corn bread and peas, and it was very good. I will definitely be making this one again!"
