    Would rate this a 10 if I could. Browned breakfast sausage (from this site) with 1 lb hamburger. Added onion, celery and red pepper. Mixed in undrained can tomatoes and green chilies and drained and rinsed can red kidney beans. Mixed cooked noodles with the meat mixture. Poured into greased baking dish. Topped with shredded provel cheese and sharp cheddar. Baked for 15 minutes. Very versatile recipe. Next time will melt Velveeta cheese on top.  -  01 Jan 2011  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I changed this recipe a little. I omitted the stewed tomatoes and added jar prego sauce. I also left out the kidney beans. I also added provolone and mild cheddar cheeses.  -  17 Nov 2004  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This casserole is EXCELLENT. I like to add extra cheddar cheese, mushrooms and chilies to give it some extra kick... my friends love it. Thanks from a (formerly) hungry college student.  -  14 Feb 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
