OMG!!! This recipe is a keeper in this house, we both loved it. I did a couple of tweaks tho. Instead of adding the beef broth to the noodle cooking water & saving 1/2 cup of that, I added 1/2 cup of straight beef broth to the meat mixture. And I used Havarti cheese in place of provolone. I will definitely be cooking this again.
