My husband and kids absolutely loved this dish. I thought it was okay. Found it to be a bit on the dry side and lacking in flavor, but the rest of my family completely disagreed with me, so clearly it was just a matter of personal preference. The nice thing about this recipe is that you can add and subtract ingredients to suit your taste so it's definitely a keeper.

This is a recipe that kids would like. I doubled the amt of hamburger, as I have hungry teenage boys. However, I was afraid it would be too dry, with just 1 can of soup and 3/4 cup water, but it came out fine. An easy, 1-pot comfort-food meal.

my husband liked this so much that I had to make it twice in one week. The second time around I used mixed vegetables and put shredded cheese on top for the last 5 minutes of bake time.

This recipe is just okay. I'll eat what's left of this batch, but I wouldn't make it again.
