    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.
