"A favorite for my Son! He had begged me for so long to make it, it was a delight to see him eat so much! I used 2 lb lean ground beef and added to sauce, since everyone is a meat eater in this house."

"It was a hit! I used spicy marinara to give it a little kick. There was hardly any left after dinner for a family of six. Total cook time including prep took about an hour."

"I made this today; put in freezer with baking instructions; can't wait to eat. I read on this site that all casseroles are intended to be frozen prior to baking. I'm not sure why, but I am looking forward to a nice day where dinner prep is even easier because of my efforts today. Thank you."
