onion, finely chopped
1 (6 ounce) can
1 (16 ounce) can
1 1/3 (16 ounce) packages
sharp Cheddar cheese, shredded
grated Parmesan cheese
Just something that was edited out: if you don't have Italian seasonning, try 1/4 tsp Thyme, 1/4 tsp oregano, 1/4 tsp basil and 1/4 marjoram or rosemary.
Quick and easy weeknight throw-together! Needs a lot more seasoning. I used tomato puree and a can of diced tomatoes. Perfect thickness to hold on to the noodles.
I thought this was very good. I did, however, add more seasonings and used tomato sauce since I didn't have crushed. I didn't have italian seasoning so I used 1/2 tsp basil and 1/2 tsp oregano (I started with 1/4tsp each but it needed more flavor), reminds me of spaghetti. It only needs about a minute under the broiler, though next time I think I'll just mix the cheese into the whole thing and not dirty another dish. My boys all gave me a thumbs up, so it's a keeper. Thanks for your recipe.
I tried this recipe tonight and it was a HIT, my family loved it. I didn't use the entire 1 pound of cheddar cheese though, I used half and it was more then enough cheese...I think if I had used the entire 1 pound it would have been way too much cheese! So it worked out just great this way, thanks for the recipe!
This was good and fairly easy to fix; I scaled to 5 servings. The changes I made were using rotini pasta, Italian style tomatoes and adding a dash of worcershire to the sauce. I mixed half of the cheese into the dish, sprinkled the other half on top... :)
I doubled the amount of tomato products and I'm glad I did so. The original recipe must be very dry. Also doubled the amount of seasoning and it could have used more. A nice goulash recipe if you don't have a jar of spaghetti sauce handy.
I followed the recipe to a T. I had plenty on sauce for all. I did use separate seasonings. Was just great. Thanks
I used organic ground beef and organic roasted diced tomatoes. A packet of dry mix of Italian seasoning used to make Italian dressing was substituted for the seasoning. I began with half a packet and ended up adding the whole packet... good! I used a dash or two of Emeril's Kick It Up Sauce in place of cayenne pepper. Also added twice as much of diced tomatoes than called for as well as added about 1/2 cup of water. A half hour of cooking is plenty! Good recipe that I will make again but believe that the flavor of the ground beef I used contributed to the flavor as well as the Muir Glen roasted diced tomatoes.
