    We really liked this dish. Hubby rated it a "10". He likes hearty foods. I did substitute Trader Joe's dried mini cheese ravioli for the elbow macaroni because that's what I had on hand. This was a very tasty and filling dish that would be excellent on cold winter days.

    Needs more flavor (maybe just salt and pepper) but otherwise, my family of 5 seemed to really like it.

    Good hearty meal. Great with a crusty bread for gravy-dipping.
