Delicious. Tasted like lasagna, but much easier and quicker to assemble.
The kids loved it!
I loved how easy it was to put together. The flavor truly was like having lasagna without all the prep. I used a good bulk italian sausage which I think was the magic ingredient. Next time I think I'll try sprinkling mozzerella cheese on top too!
Did perfect at my potluck party at work... It wasn't hard to clean the dish when there wasn't anything left in it by end of the lunch!
This is an easy and flavorful casserole. I used 1lb hamburger and 1/2 lb italian sausage instead of all sausage because my children sometimes can't handle a lot of the spices but it was still quite tasty. The dish was not dry like others I have tried.
