    I made this exactly as prepared and it was delicious. The only advice I can give is to be sure and not over-cook the noodles, maybe even just cook them al dente to be sure they don't come out mushy. Excellent combination of flavors! This will be one of our favorites.  -  28 Jan 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This was pretty good. I used low fat ground beef; low fat/low sodium soup and low fat cheddar. My husband liked it more than I did. I'll make it again to keep him happy!  -  21 May 2001  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
