This hamburger casserole looks so delicious! I will add this to my list of comfort food dishes to make on chilly days.

I liked this casserole and the blend of flavors, and a little was very filling. But, I prefer spicy food, so I would add hot sauce or some extra seasoning.

This could have used a bit more seasoning, but overall I enjoyed the mix of hamburger and pasta in one dish. It was very filling!

I thought this casserole was a little bland, but I think it'd be the perfect dinner for kids that are picky eaters. It was very filling and the hamburger meat, cheese, and pasta was a nice mix.

Quick and simple! I'm a huge fan of pasta dishes, so this is right up my alley.

While not my favorite dinner recipe, it is great for a last-minute, easy meal.

great dinner for families

I enjoyed how hearty this dish was without making me too full. The flavors came together well to create a dish that would work well for lunch or dinner.

Is very good.
