No one can resist a hearty entree like's true comfort food at its finest. The recipe only calls for 1/2 cup gravy. Refrigerate the remainder and serve it with potatoes or leftover roast beef at another meal. —Taste of Home Test Kitchen, Milwaukee, Wisconsin

    We enjoyed this quick meal. I did season the ground beef with salt, pepper and garlic powder. Rule one in cooking-use salt. This will be one of my go to weekday meals when I want something quick and tasty.

    It was fast and economical but then again so is a box of hamburger helper- which by the way it tasted exactly like. My family was not impressed and I probably won't repeat the recipe.

    I make this about once a month. My family loves it! I leave out the mushrooms because my husband is allergic.

    I thought the french soup made it almost too "sweet" family was not crazy about the dish. I'll keep looking for a beef and noodle dish.

    This was very easy to make, but it was quite bland.
