Rotini beef casserole

Submitted by: JACKIECUTL

Introduction

This recipe can be altered to make it lower in fat and sodium. I make this quite often and just realized I definitely have been eating more than one serving but it is very tasty! This is also good to cut into individual portions and freeze. This recipe can be altered to make it lower in fat and sodium.

    My husband and I tried this recipe this evening. We really didn't like it at all. Maybe we're just not soy sauce and worcestershire fans but we ended up throwing the whole dish out. - 5/7/09

  • My family loved this recipe! My husband is gluten intolerant so I used brown rice noodles. I wasn't sure about was how much hamburger to use or what kind of vinegar to use either so I used 2 lbs of hamburger and 1/2 balsamic and 1/2 apple cider vinegars. - 1/11/12

  • Very good! It tasted like a sloppy joe with pasta.I will definitely be making this again.It was hard not to go back for seconds.I think next time I'll cut down on the butter or eliminate it all together because the dish is pretty high in fat. - 4/13/09

    Cut into 9 equal portions and 1 portion is equal to 1 serving. Hope this helps.

  • My family and I absolutely loved this! My two year old, who likes to pick at her food even gobbled it up. It was hard not to go back for seconds. It was sooooo delicious! This beats Hamburger Helper and it's additives by far. I will definitely make this again and again! Thanks for sharing! - 4/8/09
