"This was my first time trying this recipe and I was looking for something to take to a potluck. It was a huge hit. The crockpot was licked clean. Excellent flavor - great hit with the kids and a great recipe for a hearty hot meal during the cold weather."

"I am the original contributor of this recipe, and I thought I should make a comment to clarify a few things. When I was first tried this recipe in the late '80s, a jar of spaghetti sauce was 30 or 32 oz (& I always got the 32 oz). Now the standard jar is 23-26 oz, so there is around 8 oz of liquid gone from the recipe. I now add either an 8 oz. can of tomato sauce and a little extra Italian seasoning, or 8 oz. of pizza sauce to compensate for the decrease. Also, 16 oz. of noodles (or pasta as I actually submitted for the recipe) is way too much. I generally cook 8 - 10 oz of broken lasagna noodles or bowtie pasta, and just use what makes for nice layers. And just like pizza, you can add more "toppings" or take away for your tastes."

"I left out the mushrooms as we do not like them and increased the pepperoni to a 7 oz package and also increased the amounts of cheeses added. I'm not fond of the cheddar in this. Noodles did get a bit dry on top and there was not enough sauce. Because of the amount of noodles (12 oz egg noodles) I had to use, I used my 7-qt crock-pot and it BARELY fits everything.

Next time I make this I am using only white cheeses. The cheddar made it taste sour! I will also be adding more sauce to it! I will use my edited version over the original. I also think I will reduce the amount of noodles by half!"

"This was very easy and really good. I only used 2 cups of Mozzarella and 2 cups of Cheddar to cut down on calories and it saved me from having cheese leftover since I couldn't find any that came in 3 cup pkgs."

"This was good, except I left it on warm too long and it got all greasy because of the oils in the cheeses. My mistake, but I would definitely make it again. Thanks for sharing!"

"This was so much fun for my kids to make (along with me). My husband really liked it too. One thing to note; you can make it with sausage (like sage flavored Jimmy Dean) and add whatever else you might like. Maybe Canadian bacon instead of pepperoni, since it can be a bit spicy for little kids. Either way it was a fantastic recipe! Thank you!!!! It's going in my "family favorite" section!!!"

"Scrumptious! Was looking for something for a potluck dish for a bunch of hungry teenagers, did a taste-testing on my family first - and this was a HUGE hit all around! I decreased the Italian seasoning by half, and used fresh mushrooms, also added some garlic. Everyone said this was a "definite keeper"!"
