great flavor, Member tn524

I was looking for a good casserole recipe to make something I can take to work for an easy lunch. This one reheats nicely in the microwave, sometimes casseroles get too dried out but this one didn't. Great flavors, nice sauce. I forgot to buy egg noodles so I used spaghetti and it turned out fine. In fact I think I like it better. I added some buttered bread crumbs and extra cheese (parmesan and gouda) for some crunch on top. I will make this one again.
