It's not uncommon for folks to go back for second helpings of this hearty main dish when I share it at church potluck suppers. The combination of ground beef, noodles, cheese and a zippy tomato sauce is a crowd-pleaser. —Katherine Moss, Gaffney, South Carolina

"I served this dish for our annual New Year's Day friends' and family open house when it was first published. Casserole and plates were clean!!! I used mozzarella cheese and had a container of Parmesan available for sprinkling. It's a keeper!!!"

"This is a great casserole to make. It has a lot of flavor and the little bit of cayenne adds just enough heat. I did add extra cheese to mine. My family loves cheese! We will make this again!"

"There are a lot of spaghetti casseroles similar to this recipe, and most of them are good. We all like to personalize them to suit our tastes, and lots of folks enjoy sharing what they added or left out. For us, this one was a little dry and bland. We changed it up to add the items/flavors that we like best."

"Tasty - and a nice, lighter substitute for regular spaghetti. Also made this with penne pasta - easier for toddlers and young children to eat. And added extra tomato sauce."

"I followed this recipe exactly except for a little less cayenne pepper, and all I can say is blah, blah, blah. No flavor at all! My husband liked it but he likes everything so he doesn't count. I won't be making this again and it was a huge disappointment ."

"Read all of the reviews, only change I made was to use 10 oz. of jarred spaghetti sauce instead of the 8 oz of tomatoe sauce. This is so very good and easy to make with plenty for leftovers. I think this will be even better the next day. This is a keeper for sure and if you need to feed a crowd this recipe will do it, just add bread and a little salad and you have dinner. Good recipe."

"My family liked this recipe better than another baked spaghetti recipe I usually make. I used diced can tomatoes with oregano, basil, and garlic and I left out the garlic powder."

"Love this casserole! It's like spaghetti meats chili, so it's a crowd pleaser. Even for the kids!"

"I have made this recipe many times since it was first published. I always use a 16oz jar of spaghetti sauce and a can of Rotel in lieu of the tomato sauce and diced tomatoes. Sometimes I substitute ground italian sausage for a portion of the hamburger meat. It's always tastes delicious and every time I serve it to company, they love it."
