This was very delicious and a big hit in our house. We added extra noodles (just to use up the whole box) and it was perfect. We will definitely be making this again!

This recipe is so yummy! I doubled the recipe to have lots of leftovers and used 2 lbs of beef, left the water out, used 1% milk, Neufchatel cheese, and colby jack cheese. I added an extra cup of cheese to balance it out. The spices mix well, and the end result is a creamy, hearty dish that even my two-year old daughter loved. Thanks for sharing!
