Reviews for Hamburger Noodle Casserole
"Over cheesy. Didn't think the cheddar belonged on the top."
"A little time consuming, but tasty. I left out the sugar."
"This recipe actually surprised me!! I was a little skeptical about combining cream cheese, ricotta and sour cream, I thought it would have been too much! I read the reviews, and added some Italian sausage, green peppers and onions. It was so good....comforting on a cold day and very creamy. Will definitely make again!!!!"
"Results were split. Two liked it and two did not. I found it to gooey like, with no real flavor. very bland in my opinion. Will not make again."
"Loved this!! I did not use anything low fat or fat free and it needed a little bit more seasoning, but otherwise, yummy and easy!!"
"Delicious! Used 2lbs of ground beef...also substituted a jar of tomato basil marinara instead of canned tomato sauce and doubled the green onions. The whole family gave it thumbs up. Will definitely make again!"
"Pretty good & simple to make. Next time I may try adding salsa and black olives, or using a mix of sausage and hamburger."
"This is filling. That is all the good I can say about it. It is tasteless. If you want pasta, you'd be better off frying up some hamburger and adding it to Kraft Mac & Cheese, or using a box of Hamburger Helper. With cheese as expensive as it is, don't waste it on this tasteless dish. We have a lot of leftovers which I hope to entice people to eat by adding jarred spaghetti sauce. It was a pain to make, too--lots of dirty pans. If you're looking for a yummy hamburger noodle dish, keep looking!"
"I have fixed this recipe twice and my husband and I agree it is a 'keeper'. However, I agree with one other review...it is a little bland. I think I will try substituting 24 ozs. of spaghetti sauce for the tomato sauce the next time I make it."
