    Add a little worchestershire, 1/2 TBSP dried onion, 1 TBSP dried tomato bulllion, and about a tsp of yellow mustard. Definitely needs more seasoning than what’s listed.

    Flavorless... flavorless. Bears repeating because the app doesn’t allow me to keep my review to just one word.

    It was very tasty. I added some cajun spice to add some flavour

    Really good dish and very easy to make! I used a cup of mozzarella and a cup of cheddar instead of a half cup. It did however get kind of dry overnight in the fridge though, but it was still edible.

    Very good. The family liked it, especially the kiddos. Served with broccoli which complimented well.

    Right before I put it in the oven, I added a can of corn, mixed it up and then put the cheese on top. While family loved it.

    Came out pretty good. I had to substitute Penne pasta as no shells were available. very nice and easy to make. Worth making again.

    Simple, but good. Everyone ate some. Next time I’ll cook the noodles and then add the meat to the Dutch oven to bake.

    turned out well, but I added monterrey jack cheese to intensity the flavor. Overall really good. My kids are picky eaters and they enjoyed this dish.
