I made several changes to this, but it turned out delish! I used a mixture of crumbled Italian sausage/lean ground beef for the meat, added fresh mushrooms, subbed Italian blend cheese instead of jack, and added some crushed red pepper. Also, since I am not fond of egg noodles, I used regular pasta (cavitappi) cooked just under al dente. I have also made it with just the sausage (one pound only, Jimmy Dean Italian and it was plenty). It makes a LOT, and it's good enough for company. Served with Italian salad and garlic bread. Recommend!
