We enjoyed this tasty dish. DH particularly liked the bacon and requested that I add more next time. FYI, my 4 slices of bacon yielded a little more than 2T. of bacon grease. I found this a little too dry perhaps because I used half and half in place of cream. I will make again and use cream. Also I needed more than 1/4 cup bread crumbs because I used a rather shallow dish with a large surface area. Maybe a smaller deeper dish woud have helped the dryness?? Anyway, this is good and worth fixing again.

Delicious! I also put chopped fresh mushrooms with the dish. I put it in too large a dish and had to cover it so the noodles would not get overcooked and hard at the edges. I whipped the cottage cheese also. Makes a great main dish with additional vegies. Thanks for posting!

this was great
