    It was a very good hotdish and was even able to cut it into squares. I will make it again. I made some substitutions since I didn't have all the ingredients. I used Greek yogurt instead of sour cream and made tomatoe sauce from a can of tomatoe paste. I used cheddar cheese. I did add some pepperoni since I had some in my fridge. Lastly, I mixed a little grated Parmesan cheese into the soup mixture. My teen boys loved it!

    I read all the reviews and took the advice of others to add herbs, onions, and garlic to add flavor. My boys (11 and 8) liked it, but said it needed more spice. My husband thought it was just okay. I felt like it was missing spice too. If I make it again, I'll try a different sauce, like arrabiata or add red pepper flakes.

    Yummy & easy!! And great that it can be assembled ahead of time. The only change I made was adding some Italian seasoning while the meat was cooking. Kids & hubby loved it. Will definitely make it again. Thanks for a great recipe!

    This is a tasty dish. I added onions, garlic while browning the hamburger, and a fresh, chopped roma tomato to the casserole just before baking. Since I'm cooking for one now, I need good and easy recipes that left overs freeze well and this does

    I would like to try this recipe but the can of soup will not be gluten fee. Any ideas for a substitute It would be nice if more recipes would mention alternatives to ingredients that have gluten.
