"This recipe wasn't terrible, but it wasn't amazing either. I read the reviews beforehand and made sure to add extra spice to the tomato mixture. I also put this in the oven instead of frying up the patties (I'm not a fan of frying). We wound up putting these over rice, and while it was a decent meal, I'm not sure I would make it again. It simply tasted like burgers with tomatoes on top."

"Delicious! I used ground turkey and fresh garlic instead of garlic powder. For those who found it bland, I wonder if the tasted it as they were cooking it. I added a lot of extra oregano, basil, and garlic powder to the tomato sauce mixture even though I bought the Italian tomato sauce and Italian diced tomatoes."

"Split decision in our home. My oldest loved it, which is a compliment b/c he is very picky! I liked it, although the sauce seemed to dry up instead of making a sauce for the meat to simmer in. My husband didn't care for it, but he isnt really a fan of tomato based sauces."

"Not bad. I used ground turkey instead of ground beef and I would make it again. Because some said it was bland, I did add some of my own seasonings to the tomato sauce, but the meat itself was seasoned very well. Next time I may salt my noodles."

"I found this recipe to be quite bland without much flavor. I want to try it again but next time, I'll add more spices and Worcestershire sauce."
