Personal Review: Oh my goodness, I cannot say enough good things about this recipe. It was so delicious and easy to make. Here’s a few tweaks I made to it: first while I was browning the meat I added some garlic powder and red pepper flakes. I considered putting in some fresh garlic, but my garlic press was dirty and so I just went with the powder. Diced onions would probably be good to add as well. You definitely need to add some spice to the meat so it has a little bit of a pop of flavor 🙂 To ease things, definitely start the noodles and don’t start browning the meat until you first put the noodles in – it will be timed better that way. Also definitely let it sit for 10-15 minutes after you take it out of the oven. It was kind of like a lasagna, and it needed to sit so that it doesn’t all fall apart when you eat it.

Highly recommended 🙂
