MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 30, 2015

"My two kids loved this, but my husband thought it could use some seasoning and he missed the crunch that baking it provides. But overall, this was a really good and fairly quick recipe. I substituted ground turkey for ground beef, but otherwise, made no changes to the recipe. Served it with sweet potato fries and roasted green beans."

"This sounds yummy and for the most part meets my husband's dietary needs but I need to reduce the sodium. Can I substitute onion powder for the salt and low sodium tomato sauce without sacrificing flavor?"
