MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 6, 2014

I have fixed this recipe twice and my husband and I agree it is a 'keeper'. However, I agree with one other review...it is a little bland. I think I will try substituting 24 ozs. of spaghetti sauce for the tomato sauce the next time I make it.

I added more herbs and sautéed an onion and green pepper in with the meat. I also added a touch of Frank's Red Hot to give it a kick.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 27, 2013

VERY bland and I added Basil and Oregano to the meat. My husband and I ate it, but didn't like it, but it was nearly impossible to get our picky eater to eat it. It took a long time to make and definitely wasn't worth it.
