MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 6, 2014

"Really good and easy to make. I didn't have spiral pasta on hand so substituted 2 cups (uncooked) elbow macaroni, which I think turned out to be a bit too much. Will use 1-1/2 cups the next time. I also increased the cheese b/c we love cheese to a 2 cup mix between sharp cheddar and Monterey jack. This dish has lots of flavor. I made it ahead, put it in the fridge then brought it to room temp to bake. Will definitely make it again."

"Easy, a nice mild "mexican" dish for those who can't do very spicy dishes but still like the flavors. The pasta is a creamy complement to the meat layer."

"this is an amazingly simple and delicious recipe. i also add a can of tomatoes and use mexican cheese, and add in whatever other veggie I have available, spinach, corn, etc, and it always comes out perfectly. i have taken it to pot luck dinners where usually the pasta is the last to go, but this is one of the first dishes gone!"
