"Oh man...I SO wanted to love this. It sounded great and I prepared the dish exactly as written (with the same herbs and all.) But it was just a so-so dish and nobody really ate it. The kiddos picked through the casserole, found the bacon and we threw the rest away. :( Would not make again, just too many other dishes out there worth making instead."

"Wow. Totally expected to not like this recipe as I hate tomatoes but it turned out to be so delicious! Couple things I changed. I didn't add the pepper, gives my mom heart burn. I upped the onion to one whole medium onion(cooks down) and I added three garlic cloves and a large handful of chopped basil. I also added two teaspoons of sugar to sweeten the tomatoes. Marjoram wasn't added because I didn't have any. I knew this recipe was a keeper when my mother griped over the lack of leftovers and then requested it again a couple night later."

"Excellent. Everyone including the four kiddos liked it. We substituted some sausage as we didn't have a enough bacon, and we doubled the recipe which worked great."

"This was really good! I quickly made a small batch of my own stewed tomatoes with tomatoes from my garden. Since we have 6 kids, I doubled the amount of noodles, and it didn't effect the flavor. It was delicious, and still not enough! I didn't use the green peppers because I didn't have any, but it didn't hurt it."

"This dish was awesome. The only change I made was using fire roasted tomatoes and the flavor was fantastic. No leftovers, so I'll be making this one again real soon ... it's a definate keeper!"
