Cheese, onions, mince and macaroni baked with cherry tomatoes and fresh thyme. Simple and delicious.
We didn't care for this casserole, it was very bland. I really think the 1/2 cup of flour really took away from the dish, it seemed to nutralize the taste of the cheese. - 12 Aug 2004 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
This is a very good recipe...The only changes we made was to use evaporated milk instead of regular milk, and we added Panko bread crumbs mixed with grated paremesean cheese and a little paprika for color on top before baking..Also, make sure the flour is fully cooked - a couple of minutes before adding in the cheese. - 19 Oct 2006 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
Okay all....this recipe is a good idea but WAY to bland for my taste!! I would make the following changes 1. MORE CHEESE!! You can barely taste any cheese 2. NO THYME...or a lot less of it. It's so strong...to me it tasted like macaroni and thyme! (I don't like thyme so I would leave it out.) 3. MORE BEEF! You can't taste this either. 4. GARLIC! This would add a great flavour to this dish. 5. LESS FLOUR...it wasn't saucy at all..just too thick. All in all the idea is good it just needs to be worked on a little bit! - 25 Oct 2006 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
