Another wonderful thing about this recipe is that it’s versatile, so add more or less cheese if you’d like {or a non-fat variety}.

You can also use other noodles of choice.

My kids gobble this casserole up, and my oldest asked for this one to replace other casseroles I make. It’s always a win when everyone in the family enjoys a meal!
