I am not sure why this recipe has so many positive reviews. I followed the recipe the letter. This is blah and bland! Save your ground beef, save your can of soup, save yourself and make something else.

My grandsons won't eat anything with pieces of onion so I blend the onion with tomato sauce before adding to the dish. Very good after school, cold day dish.

You can be sure I'll be making again and again for my husband and myself. I do not salt anything so will leave out. Definitely will add garlic powder along with onion. YUM!

Good but not a lot of flavor. Definately needs a garlic roll. Will make again but use a pizza sauce for the tomato sauce. I cut the recipe in half and would serve more than the four suggested.

I didn't have the exact ingredients on hand, so I prepared this dish with unsalted butter, 1% milk and unsalted tomato sauce. I added about a 1/2 tsp additional salt to the beef mixture. Also used a sprinkle of dried parsley instead of fresh. I thought it was very good!

This was just ok. A lot like Mac n cheese with beef. Easy to make though, and definitely edible, just not fantastic.
