Ratings & Reviews




This simple recipe surprised me with it's outstanding, delicious flavour. I used a sun-dried tomato dressing with oregano instead of Italian as I didn't have any in the house. It was amazing! My husband loved it. I'll be making it often.


This was very tasty, my whole family enjoyed it. I needed a quick dinner with easy clean-up. I didn't have any zesty italian dressing, so I used catalina. It worked well.


my son loved it, asks for it all the time. easy and excellent


My family liked it, but didn't love it. It was very easy to make. I added onions and garlic to the hamburger. I'm not a fan of frozen vegetables, so next time I may choose to use fresh vegetables. It would a recipe that I might make once or twice a month.



This recipe was delicious!!!! It is a great meal and cheap too, and you can throw pretty much anything you want into it. I also added some mushrooms and peas and corn, with some garlic powder. AWESOME!!


FANTASTIC!! I love this recipe! It has the protein, carbs and vegs all rolled into one. I have made this for my family and potlucks, an all time favourite sure to be passed down to my daughters. Yummy!



This was a yummy dish and easy to make.Very good.I will definitely make it again!!


Great recipe. My whole family loved it! I made a few additions that I would recommend... I browned the ground beef with 1 onion and a couple cloves garlic. I added 1/2 cup salsa, 1 can baked beans and some Parmesan cheese to the mixture before putting it in the casserole dish. I also added a bit more Italian dressing. Turned out wonderfully!



The kids asked me to make this - and gobbled it up. A hit!


Great recipe and a hit with the kids. Its the first time my 3 year old wanted seconds. And different for parents that are tired of eating KD
