    My kids love this , one of them very picky but eats this no problem. change it up a little... I add about half a cup of grated marble cheddar, I use a spanish onion,chopped( approx. 1/4 of onion). and a red bell pepper chopped ( 1/2 of the pepper).Very easy... Seems to be even better next day warmed up.

    made this tonight - added bacon...mmm, bacon! Leftovers? Um, nope

  • Kathi J.

    I just made this and already I think there's too much milk in it - not nearly as cheesy looking as that photo....

  • Myrtle M.

    Thought it was great!

  • Kathy P.

    why can't I log-in on your web site but can do it throw my facebook.

    When I made this, I wasn't overly impressed, but I took some to work with me for lunch the next day anyway. It was SOOO much better the next day!! Not sure if leaving it overnight lets the flavor set in, but I would highly recommend making this the day before :)

  • April M.

    So I made this on Monday and thought, meh, it's okay but I wouldn't make it again. But then I had it for lunch the next day and it was much better. Just a tip, it tastes better the next day!

    Hi Hana. We like to measure in soup cans. That amounts to 284 ml, just fill up the empty can of soup with milk!

  • Hana R.

    looks like my kids will love this..but what is a soup can of milk?

  • Ann A.

    Reading all the comments before even trying this recipe gave me some great ideas! For those of you that like more taste and a little more zip - with the lady that put burger and 1 tbsp taco seasoning, lightly scrunch up Nacho chips (which ever kind you like) I like Zesty, and put them on top mixed with (X) or sharp cheddar cheese instead of bread crumbs and marg. More onions of any kind always make it better, even chop up some garlic. ENJOY!!

  • Jennifer D.

    A can of tomatoes and shredded cheddar make it delish!!

  • Anna V.

    I added some grated cheddar on top and a few sliced hot dogs to the mix, turned out really good!!

  • lyn a.

    incredible !!!

  • Lisa H.

    Not very cheesy so I added some shredded cheddar. But it is a nice light dish.

  • Jacqueline B.

    Family loved it!

  • Renee K.

    Made this tonight ,added last nights leftover Meatloaf a Can of Stewed Tomatoes & some Shredded Cheese,doubled the Bread Crumbs & a dash of Cayenne Pepper,,YUMMMM!!

  • Michael N.

    This recipe is awesome. I tried it last night. It is delicious!!

    Hi i usually invent things to make with Campbell's soup . I am type one diabetic and this is usually when I have to eat quickly . Is there any recipes that are for high cholesterol and diabetes . I would be very interested in these recipes also !! with this recipe i found it didn't have enough flavor to suit the Grand kids but i have seen a couple of good ideas from other women on here . Thank you so much for your help !! Looking forward to cooking with you . 8-) Your friend Gina Hodder

  • Jacqueline B.

    Needed shredded cheese added, but my kids loved it and said it tasted like nachos! Next time I'll try it with ground beef!

  • Alicia C.

    This recipe is delicious!!! I add about half a cup of shredded marble/cheddar cheese & a few slices of crisp bacon for some extra flavor! Yum!

  • Erin A.

    I was looking at the recipe and thought it looked a little bland and since i'm a HUGE fan of cheese and a little spice i added a couple handfulls of Kraft Tex Mex Shredded Cheese and some chopped banana peppers. I mixed the cheese and peppers in with the sauce and then put some more cheese on the top underneath the bread crums. DELICIOUS!

  • Erin W.

    After reading a few of the other comments, I adjusted the recipe and it turned out fantastic. I added a bit of dry mustard powder, cayenne pepper and used a cooking onion instead of green onion. My husband loved it and we can't wait to warm up the leftovers!

  • Heather M.

    I added the hamburger and 1 tbsp of taco seasoning for a bit of kick. My Hubby and 2 year old son loved it! Left overs are even better!

  • Jeanna G.

    I've made this, but added can of Mushroom Soup (no water or milk). My son and I love it and it's our favourite!

  • Frances O.

    I made this meal adding 2 cups of cheddar into it. It was still too dry so maybe a can of stewed tomatoes would help it also.

  • Miranda Lee Ford-Cook

    i add hamburger and bacon for a bacon cheeseburger kida feel mmmmmmm

  • Heather

    This recipe was awesome! Instead of adding tomato, I added broccoli, as well as garlic powder and cheese on top. Delicious.

  • Jaret

    Didn't find this dish to have very much flavor. It definitely could've used something to spice it up a bit. Maybe mixing in a can of tuna or something would've also added some meat/protein to this dish.

  • Breanna

    Mmm.... my mouth is watering just looking at this, can't wait to make it!

  • Suzanne

    This was very bland. I even added an extra can of soup and an extra 1/2 cup of cheese. I was amazing how little taste it had.

  • deb

    Love it! I added my own little twist to this recipe, by adding Accent italian styled stewed tomatoes and cheddar cheese on top. I also doubled up on the recipe and got 2 great meals from it. Plus I made my own bruschetta bread to go along with it, which complimented the meal nicely. My family loved this and I will be making it again soon.

  • Danielle

    Love this recipe! I added shredded cheese to the soup mixture as well as on top. My husband and daughter both gobbled it up, I will definitely be making this again :)

    Amazing recipe!

  • M.

    sounds good, looks good and a basic easy meal.

  • JILL

    In response to Darian's comment ..... the recipe calls for cooked macaroni - hope you figured this out before wasting the ingredients and your time. I think you missed the bracketed info. 4 cups hot cooked elbow macaroni (about 2 cups/500 mL uncooked)

  • Sonia

    Too many recipes containing meat. What about recipes for vegetarians or vegans?

  • Sam

    Really good recipe only thing I would change is to do less macaroni and do some shredded cheese on top

  • Darian

    im going to try this to night but in the recipie believe the macaroni should be cooked first as at the end you are really just heating it thru.

  • Donna

    Husband loved it! Flavour was goodI, however, found it too dry and not cheesy enough. Next time I will put in less macaroni or an extra can of soup and maybe some shredded cheddar.
