It was SOOO good. I made it a bit different (ha is that new!). I used a full bag of 2kg of hash browns, and I mis-read tomato sauce to tomato soup (I figured it out as I opened the can) so ours had a can of tomato soup and some tomato sauce. I didn't have any onions in the hash browns so I cut up 1/3 of an onion. I added in the diced tomatoes and put in some spices with basil, garlic and oregano (since my diced tomatoes didn't have any). But dang it was SOOOO good and SOOOOO filling. I ended up getting 1 HUGE helping, 2 small helpings. As well as 5 meals for Arnold for work and a HUGE container in the fridge I have been eating each lunch day. It's sooo good. Oh and noodles were egg noodles! Enjoy
