"This is a great recipe for busy mothers, and it's excellent with a tossed salad and French bread. It's a ground beef casserole that combines egg noodles, some sherry, and cheese in a tomato sauce base. To reduce the fat content, you may use reduced fat cheese, cut green beans, and 93% lean meat. Also, you may adjust the amount of sherry to taste." — CANDACE COOK

2 (10.75 ounce) cans
condensed tomato soup
shredded Cheddar cheese
grated Parmesan cheese
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.
I love sherry in certain dishes, but this wasn't one of them. If you like hamburger helper (which is good for quickie night dinners when you have to run with the kids) try it, but use marinara sauce instead of the soup. At least you don't have to worry about all of the chemicals as you would in the boxed stuff.
This is excellent! I have been making this for months now, I'm finally getting around to reviewing it. I make this exactly except that I mix the parm in. The sherry gives it a very rich flavor and the soup makes it luscious and creamy. My husband thinks it tastes like lasagna. Some reviewers have mentioned that baking is unneccesary, I dissagree. The baking melds the flavors together and give the noodles a lovely soft texture,(be sure to cook al dente to start). It is all so worth the effort!
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!
Hubby said to give it 4 stars. He did eat 2 big helpings. After reading the reviews, I only used 1/8 cup sherry and baked it for 15 minutes, just to let the Parmesan cheese melt on top. I used shredded parmesan instead of grated. The sherry definitely gave it a unique flavor that I enjoyed, but don't think I would have wanted more in the sauce. I also used a mexican blend cheese because I didn't have the cheddar cheese. Next time I might try using at least 1 can of tomato sauce to replace one of the cans of soup.
Yum, yum! This is truly a comfort food with reminders of casseroles from my youth. I added onion and canned mushroom pieces and left out the sherry and everyone LOVED this recipe. It is to become one of our frequently served fall & winter meals! THANK YOU.
Very easy and good! Made it lowfat by using ground turkey, lowfat tomato soup, and omitting the cheese. Still turned out great! Thanks for the recipe!
I thought this was going to be so good but it ended up being Hamburger Helper.
It was an exact copy of hamburger helper which you can but in the store for 1/10
of the cost this took to prepare. Not my favorite.
