"I don't understand those who rate a recipe and then proceed to write their recipe that is completely different from the one written. I get minor tweaks, which most cooks do anyway, but this whole paragraph of changes doesn't belong here.

Otherwise, I enjoyed this dish AS WRITTEN."

"I tried this recipe and I'd used 1 lb. of ground turkey instead of beef and three sweet Italian turkey sausages which I'd broken up, along with 1 green pepper & the onion. I'd added 2 Tbsp. oil to the meat/sausage for more even cooking/browning. I had added 1/8 to 1/4 tsp. ground pepper to egg and milk mixture.

For the sauce, I used a 15-oz. can of pizza sauce a 15-oz. can of tomato sauce. For cheese, I used about 1 to 1-1/2 cups of Italian 5-blend shredded cheese. I'd baked the entire dish for 30 minutes at 350o F. I think the recipe was very tasty! delowenstein"

"This recipe could be good if it was tweaked a bit. The sausage needs to be cooked separately to ensure doneness. It was good but I like the person's idea of adding ground sausage instead to give it that even cooking."

"Fantastic! Only change was instead of Italian sausage( hubby hates it) I used pork sausage. Sooooo good. Served with garlic bread and a salad. Hubby said he would be happy to have this for leftovers."

"I added a 23.9 ounce jar of spaghetti sauce with sausage instead of a 14 ounce jar without meat, dried basil and garlic powder to the meat mixture. I also put Parmesan cheese on top of the mozzarella cheese. All other ingredients remained the same. Very good. Next time I will add the Parmesan cheese and parsley to the spaghetti mixture as a previous review suggested."

"This was really good and even better, it was so easy to make. I didn't have the green pepper but it didn't deter from the deliciousness.

My daughter came out of her room and said, "Mom, you have my permission to make this again!" and proceeded to have a second helping."
