Great recipe! Needed something easy and good for my kids, and this was perfect. I used canned diced tomatoes instead of cutting my own, and it worked just as well. Nice!

Really good recipe, I added some mushrooms for a few extra veggies. Definitely will make again as the kids loved it

This was pretty tasty! When I do it again, I might serve with green onions, or some classic chili toppings.

I'm lazy and didn't measure anything. Still came out fantastic, and is easy to tweak to your own taste

Very good!

An excellent dish and easy to make I added a little bit of white wine at the end of frying the noodles and used Rotel tomatoes instead of regular Tomatoes was awesome!

We added some cheese, but that was the only change we made. Absolutely spectacular dish! Great for a cold day!
