This was a great base recipe, all of the family really liked it, even my picky 10 yr old son 🙂 I made a couple changes, just personal preferences. I added a good dose of Italian seasoning, Emeril seasoning, and used both fresh garlic and garlic powder. and skipped the corn I put all of the spices in with the meat and onions, placed it all in a bowl when it was done cooking, and used the same pot to boil the noodles. I cooked the noodles until tender, drained the water out, then -re-added the meat mixture back into the pot and cooked it for another few minutes, giving the flavors time to “meld” together. I added in all of the cheese, mixed it around, and cooked for anther few minutes and served it right up! So the entire dish was made on the stove top, I skipped the oven all together.
