This casserole is delicious. It's similar to others I have made over the years but has a few different ingredients, like the Parmesan and green peppers in the filling, which we loved. I used a 16 ounce package of egg noodles and instead of the tomato sauce, I used a large jar of marinara sauce and threw in some fresh garlic instead of garlic powder. Since I'm not a fan of cottage cheese, I used a cup of sour cream instead. This is an easy, creamy and tasty dish.....and one that I'll definitely make again!

This is one of my favorite TOH recipes. I add one teaspoon of ground fennel to the ground beef in order to get that Italian sausage flavor. Delicious!

Very tasty! I would have given it 5 stars except the recipe wasn't clear where to put the green onions. Step 2 should have specified "green onions". I also only made one layer of noodles, beef mixture
