"I double the recipe I added Italian sausage and ground beef. I also added more cheese then the recipe called for. It was delicious. I will make again."

"My family really enjoys this dish. I found that subbing half the ground beef with Italian Sausage provides a nice flavor."

"Love the basic idea of this recipe. Would change the meat to a seasoned sausage and the cheese to shredded pizza cheese blend to make it more like pizza. Otherwise, it was a good and easy meal for the family. They said they wanted me to make it again."

"I reduced the size of this recipe to make it for two--my boyfriend and I. I sauteed the beef and onion with green pepper and fresh garlic before tossing it into the casserole, and then added chopped fresh tomato as well. I topped the casserole with a blend of bread crumbs, grated parmesan cheese, and Italian herbs, and then laid whole pepperonis on top as allaboutcookies86 suggested to mimic the look of a pizza. I used about a quarter of the cheese the recipe called for. We will definitely be making this one again."

"I made this casserole for my husband who LOVES pizza and it is very good. It does taste like a pizza. The one thing I changed because we really like cheese is to make it more like pizza I put the cheese it called for in it, but I also put another bag of cheese on top of it after I transfered the ingredients into the dish. It came out very good and VERY cheesy. The more cheese the better! Also next time I may take some of the pepperoni's and put them on top of the cheese I added to the top (just for the looks of a pizza). I can't wait to make it again!"
