    Just like I would have made so thank you so much because it saved me having to figure out the nutritional value! I only changed the frozen vege for fresh (cause that's what I had) and added a clove of garlic. - 5/6/07

  • This is great, but we tried it by making our own gravy and using no salt butter. We cut the sodium by even more...almost half of this one. It is delicious. Thanks. - 12/29/13

  • I would use 4 potatoes because two was not enough when I made it. Also use all the brown gravy in the meat. It was really good. I would make it again. - 12/6/09

  • This was so good! Instead of ground meat, I used diced leftover boiled beef brisket. I also mixed the cheese directly into the potatoes. Yum. - 5/14/09
