Recipe feedback: “We just finished eating way too much of this, it’s really that good! I’m sharing this recipe with friends and family, and I told my husband this will go to his next work potluck because it’s a 10!” – Lynn

“I tried this tonight also and it was fabulous, minus the mushrooms, which my family won’t eat. I used cheddar cheese inside and cheddar and mozzarella cheese on the top. I also served it with french green beans and buttered toast…..My family said it was a 10.” – Connie

“I added fresh spinach and used fresh mushrooms. I mixed everything together with the noodles before putting in oven. Dinner was fabulous!! Definitely will be making again.” – Kathy

“Made this tonight! I used Golden Mushroom soup and substituted 1/2 cup of beef broth for the milk. Also threw in some Velveeta as well. Delicious!” – Jenn
