This recipe really does taste like a cheeseburger, but is a bit more healthy. I have made this for my family several times and it is well received. This continues to be a family staple.

This is so delicious and tastes just like a cheeseburger. I also made extra sauce. Will definitely make again.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 16, 2014

I can tell how popular a dish is by how many servings my husband eats. (He always praises my cooking, but servings are the true test!) This dish received just one small serving. Looked colorful, smelled good while cooking and the first few bites did actually taste like a cheeseburger. But overall, wasn't our favorite meal and likely won't make again for the family. Maybe needed extra sauce as folks mentioned?

This pasta was delicious but I do think extra sauce is needed. So I improvised on the amounts to make it saucy enough my family. They loved it!!
