    Easy, quick and kid approved! This was delicious and I love that you replaced traditional shredded cheddar with the soup- makes it more creamy! I made a half batch and actually did 1/2 beef and 1/2 Ital. sausage which I think enhanced the flavor. I will be making this again!

    This is a great dish to take to a pot luck or reunion. It disappears fast wherever I take it.

    I doubled this recipe and made one 11 x 7 pan for us and a large disposable pan for a client's family funeral luncheon. The mild flavor is nice for large groups. A definite keeper!

    I tweek it just a tad with more cheese and some extra sharp cheddar cheese mixed in and on top....I also like mine a little spicier so I add some greek seasoning instead of Italian seasoning and creole seasoning and Cheyenne pepper....I also use 2 lbs of hamburger 1 1/2 c. of bell peppers and 1 1/2 cups of onion.....other than that it is wonderful and is a good recipe for a large crowd or left overs all week....I have already made it twice and my husband loves it with French bread.....very very good!!!!!
