    Super Great! I added black beans, sausage, and a little more macaroni and it was outstanding! Ohhh and obviously extra cheese 😜

    Tastey, I put rice in in place of pasta (1 cup rice cooked in 2 cups of chicken broth). I also forgot the corn and I left out red pepper flakes because of my 4 year old. Will make again.

    Delicious!!! I have two younger children who don’t do spice, so I did leave the heat out of the “Magic Dust,” but still very, very delicious!

    So yummy! I used olives because I didn't have canned tomatoes and it was really good! I will definitely make it again

    This was very tasty. The only ingredient that is hard to find is the green chillies in tomatoes so I omitted it altogether. This recipe was easy to make and doesn't take a ton of time to make so it's perfect for the weeknight. next time I would add less of the corn.

    I always give a rating of 5 stars when I can't think of a thing to change. This casserole had great flavor. For me all of the ingredients were at hand. There was nothing exotic. The flavor combination was marvelous. It had a pleasing presentation with great color and aroma. It was simple to prepare. It was marvelous!
