      Great recipe,thanks for posting it!

      I was trying to come up with something different to do with ground sirloin.We were all getting tired of the usual things to use it for chili,tacos,spaghetti sauce,burgers etc.It was very cold here today and this was warm, filling comfort food.I really loved the fact that it was low in calories per serving.(I didn't tell my husband or little one that though;)I left out the carrots because as one other reviewer said,I have a couple of hawk eyes here.LOL! I only used 1/4 tsp of pepper(I figured we could add more when serving)and it was perfect.My daughter gobbled hers up without a complaint and believe me thats 5 stars right there because she's VERY fussy!Thanks again for this recipe I will definitely make it again and again.

      Great casserole! I love Cooking Light recipes and they did a great job with this one. Using a cheese sauce makes this rich without being fatty. Prepared the night before and baked at dinner time which worked well. Leftovers were good, too. All I had was 85/15 ground beef, so I cooked it, drained thoroughly on paper towels, then added in the onions, garlic, and finely shredded carrots to cook for a few minutes. Definitely a repeat at my house, the whole family enjoyed it. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
