This was very good! But I didn't bake it for the last 30 minutes because it was getting dry. I made a Chinese brown sauce to pour over the entire casserole after I topped it with the chow mien noodles. I doubled the recipe and added a little more soy sauce. I also used pure sesame oil instead of butter. Thank you for this yummy recipe! I'll be blogging about it with a link back to this recipe.

I added another can of soup, fresh mushrooms and little bit more soy sauce next time I think I will add some bean sprouts. Very good tastes like chop suey.

I used ground turkey instead of beef and added small cooked shrimp. If I did it again, I would serve it over the noodles instead of mixing them in.

I thought it might be better to serve over the noodles rather than mix them in.
