Nutrition & Calorie Comments  

Waaaay good. I used cream of chicken soup as I was out of cream of mushroom and it was yummy. I used less pasta and beef as the portions I had a bit smaller, thus reducing the calorie count. YAY And this still made more than 6 servings. I brought some for lunch and froze the rest. Submitted by:

This was so good! We have been focused on a lower amount of carbs so it was great to find a recipe that was heavy with protein and low on carbs but tasted amazing! I left out the green pepper and cumin w/o losing flavor. Thanks! Submitted by:

This was a especially a hit with my daughter who had two servings and declared that it was really yummy. I subbed ground turkey (93% lean) and added in a can of cream of chicken soup. When I plug this into the recipe calculator using my changes I came up with 368 calories per serving-not 290. Submitted by:

I used spaghetti sauce so it wasn't dry. Should of used less noodles and then I wouldn't have had to add so much sauce, would of saved some calories! Submitted by:

I think the problem here is that the recipe says 18 oz hamburger. Could it possibly mean 1-8oz hamburger??? This would explain the dryness and the difference in the calorie calculator. Submitted by:

Just needed a little more salt and pepper, other than that I really enjoyed it. Will make again for sure. Submitted by:

I added velveeta 2% to the batch to create a creamier batch. Upped the calories but I usually watch throughout the day. Kids loved it! Submitted by:

Extremely delicious - it was very hard to stop at just one serving!! I added 1 can of 97% fat free cream of mushroom soup to the browned meat before adding in all the remaining ingredients, and only used 1C of cooked macaroni. We had leftovers the next day which were even more delicious. Thanks!! Submitted by:

I threw this recipe into a "recipe analyzer" on another site. It says that for 6 servings, they would be 170 grams each, but that they would carry 426 calories per serving. Not sure why there would be such a difference... Submitted by:

I added fat free cream of mushroom soup, diced tomatoes with spices in it, garlic, and just did it over the stovetop. It's really good!! Submitted by:

It was good. I mistakenly used fat free cheese and it just dried out on the top so had to add some additional regular cheese to melt. Submitted by:

I really enjoyed this receipe I did make some changes . First I didn't bake it, my baking dish broke so I did a big one-pot type deal after I cooked my meat. I left out the pepper(forgot to buy), added 98% fat free cream of mush soup and added garlic. The tomatoes came with chilies. Very yummy! Submitted by:

I simply love this meal. I had to mix the cheese in through. The 1st time I made it I baked it on top and it was way too dry. I also kept in the tomato sauce with my no salt added tomatoes. Just amazing! A family favorite. Also it fed 8 people so less calories than you think. Submitted by:

This was so good. My daughter loved it and filling to. I did add about 2 tbs of ketchup to make it less dry and eliminated the salt. We loved it. Submitted by:

Sounds good - I recalculated it using veggie crumbles, though, since I am a vegetarian. I also think less cheese would be better. Both these things reduce the calories quite a bit, especially if you increase the number served to 8. Submitted by:
