My family with two middle schoolers, used to eating a variety of cultural foods, did not get a wow out of this. I used ground turkey instead of beef and cream of celery and cream of chicken instead of cream of mushroom, because I had them on hand. That said, it lacked a crunch. I would add slivered almonds on top when I broil the cheese at the end. Good, protein and vegetable casserole, just add pepper at the end -- maybe I'll add that into the meal next time.

Recipe interesting, but I couldn’t make it because I cannot use canned soups due to high sodium content (I have kidney kidney disease). To D: I would love your recipe for cream of anything soup, if you’re willing to share it! Lizzie

Kind of bland. Substitute crispy tortilla strips for the Chinese noodles and add garlic, jalepenos, and chili spices to give it a Mexican twist.

Responding to "D", the reviews are for the recipe, not to rant about your rants or feelings towards the ingredients. If you don't like they ingredients substitute them. But only review if you plan to make the recipe or have made the recipe.

To "D" who posted a review in March, 2019: Instead of using chow mein noodles try using rice noodles found in the same section of the store. I switched to those a long time ago. They're thinner

This was good, not great (a bit tasteless) but I had to omit the chinese noodles. In the past 4 - 5 years, every time I buy those chow mein noodles, they are rancid tasting and smelling. Awful. I'm sure it's the cheap oil they are made with, most likely either canola or soy. Yuk. I don't consume either of those oils, which is also why I do not buy canned soups. They are usually loaded with one or the other. Why do people think those oils are healthy?? I make my own Cream of Anything Soup. It's easy, fast and I know what's in it.

Although it might be good for a church supper. I found it lacking taste. I have been to more church suppers than most people and don't think people would be asking for the recipe.

Great old fashioned recipe.. Older recipes didn't have many spices, especially when serving to a group.. There are many add in's to try..

I did as others suggested and added some spices. I added minced garlic and seasoned salt to the vegetables. As another person said, I don't think this is quite 8 servings. Probably more like 6. Next time I will dice the potatoes, not slice them. I may also try using vegetable broth instead of water (to give it a bit more flavor). The chow mein noodles and the cheese really made this good. I may even add more cheese next time. A good base recipe, but does need some tweaking, so 4/5 stars. I served this with fresh biscuits. This will be great for cold nights.
