Love this with the cheesy pasta throughout, and the cheese sauce made the top layer like a side of mac & cheese - super comfort food! I mixed in green pepper with the beef & onion. I might try it with chicken, different pasta like small shells or rotini or with different cheeses for variety.
needed a bit more on the seasonings but otherwise good. I also noticed the forgotten step that should have said what to do with the cheese sauce but I figured it went on top. Got it right!
I like this version much better than the traditional Greek recipes. Those call for cinnamon and/or nutmeg, which my family did not like the taste of. This may not be a traditional recipe, but it works just fine for us!
This was really good. I did need to double the macaroni and the cheese sauce.
I use jarred pasta sauce to make it a bit faster. My kids and husband love this I make it all the time.
we are a family of 7 and this is a favorite in my house!
This has been a family favorite for many years! Yes, topping is more orange than white as in the picture....but it's delicious! The cheese topping may require a little bit of patience so it doesn't burn. A keeper!
It worked but the topping does not look like the picture. I originally thought this WAS a shepard's pie because of the picture. Next time I will substitute mashed potatoes as the topping.
Ritchie, you are quite right, it's spread on top of the layers of meat and mac, as if it were a shepherds pie. ViolaB
