    Good casserole. Thanks to the other reviewers who repeatedly stated that this only serves 2, I doubled it. But even then, it barely fed all of us. Next time, I will have to triple the recipe. Also, I added 2 TBLS diced onions and sauted them in a TBLS butter with the celery so that they are cooked through and when I triple the recipe, I'm going to add more noodles. We like creamy but not "saucy."  -  13 Nov 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    9 X 13 dish is too big. Use a 1 1/2qt dish. Excellent dinner.  -  28 Sep 2000  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    YUMMY is all that I have to say! This was a hit. What a great warm-your-insides dish for winter! The only suggestions that i have are: - when making the cream sauce add cheese to it, it makes a huge difference since the cream sauce is bland. - try using small rotini noodles it bakes up great as well and it more filling - i followed someone else's suggestion and sauteed onions and the celery and it was a great addition. - without a doubt you have to triple this recipe. That made enough for one supper and one lunch (leftovers) for my husband and I which was perfect.  -  31 Jan 2003  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
