Unlike most reviewers, there was something that just didn't work for me. I think it's the combination of flavors with the cream of mushroom soup. If I try it again, I will either use cream of chicken soup, or leave it out altogether and make a white sauce with the Swiss cheese and maybe some thousand island dressing. We love sauerkraut, and would NEVER rinse it - if you're going to rinse it, you might as well just add cooked cabbage. Why would you rinse the sour away (unless you're not a fan of sauerkraut in the first place, in which case, why even make a sauerkraut recipe??). The mushroom flavor just didn't work for me in this dish - it was very peculiar.

I am 1/4 Polish. There are no recipes in the Polish cuisine that uses any pasta. Sounds good. Needs a new name.

Have made this for many years. A former co-worker introduced this to me and I immediately fell in love with it. It's easy to make and well worth the little effort. So happy to see it shared by others. Thank you.

This is really good! Next time I may try with corned beef for a Reuben casserole, substituting 3 tbl of 1,000 Island dressing for the Dijon. For this I would probable only use 1 can of soup.

I'm so glad I tried this! Looking at it, I thought it looked terrible, but the reviews convinced me to give it a chance. It was a winner with the family! I was skeptical about rinsing the sauerkraut, because I love sauerkraut and thought it was a sin to wash away the flavor, but I'm glad I did it - the amount of tang in the recipe is perfect, and if I hadn't rinsed it, it would have been overpowering. As is, it gave a really nice hint without assaulting the mouth. Really tasty casserole! (Next time, I'll cut it in half - huge leftovers for a family of three when one of them is seven years old.)

Will try this recipe with turkey kielbasa. But I must second Sue Zappa's comment about the new format for saving recipes. It is awkward and requires too many steps, since so many items belong in multiple categories. Whoever developed the program apparently doesn't do a lot of cooking for family/friends/potlucks.

I thought this was good but next time I will eliminate the mustard. Way too much for my liking!
