    Used a different pasta than elbow macaroni and used shredded cheese instead of grated.

    was delicious! I added a whole medium onion, and it was great.

    As others noted, it took a while to prepare. However, it turned out really well. The meat concoction was particularly tasty, and all of the different elements went together to make a really hardy meal.

    It took a long time to prep, but it turned out great! My husband and teenage boys all went back for seconds!

    Turned out well. Didn't take as much time as the other reviewers said. Good casserole dinner when you aren't sure what to make. Everyone ate it and there was no fighting.

    Turned out good, but there are so many steps involved. Make sure you have a lot of time.
    Great, but it needs a tad more salt. 1 tbsp vs tsp. in the meat step.
