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!

We liked this a lot. I substituted reduced fat sour cream and reduced fat cheese to try and make it healthier and my husband didn't even notice. I'd call it a good, stick to your bones recipe, very filling.

Really simple, cheap to make, and tastes GREAT! I substitute Pepper-Jack Cheese for the Monterey Jack, and it gives it just a bit of a kick!

This is delicious, just as written. The third time I made it I realized how much I like the bottom layer so decided to try a vegetarian option. I added sauteed mushrooms & zucchini to the noodle mixture w/ extra garlic and Italian cheese blend instead of the Monterey Jack. Really, really good!

I really liked this recipe. I have quite a bit frozen in the freezer right now. I have made this dish on several occassions and everyone has loved it. I like the convenience and everyone else likes the flavors. I am typically not a cream sauce type person and this dish works for me becuase of the different sauces. The only changes I made was to add a bit more garlic and some red pepper. Great dish!

I considered this recipe to be very average. It was not very flavorful, but was fairly easy to assemble.
