"Great recipe! I added some garlic and Italian seasoning for more flavor. This is a very versatile recipe that can be suited to your family's tastes. My picky kids loved it so I will definitely keep this in the rotation."

"Made recipe to a T, simply awesome. From the kids to adults, a family favorite!"

"I've tried a lot of baked pasta recipes, and so far this is my favorite. I think it's because it's easy to spice differently to match the cook's and family's taste, and it is really good as leftovers as well. I also like that it's incredibly cheap to make. I only had to buy the pepperoni and the onion and pepper, so it cost me less than 5 bucks. I like to make it on Sunday evening so I can stick it in my Rubbermaid containers and bring it to work all week. Also, my picky 4-year-old munchkin will eat it, so that's another plus."

"We all enjoyed this! I love how quick it was to put together. I omitted green pepper & mushrooms (we don't like them). I added a little mild Italian sausage (nice added flavor) & used a whole onion instead of 1/2 cup. All other ingredients were included as written. We will make again."

"Made this just as recipe called for except added more spices (oregano, basil, italian seasoning). Next time I would double the pizza sauce."

"Excellent recipe. I used 4 cups of uncooked bow tie noodles. I fry, drain, and freeze ground beef ahead to make quicker preparation. So I may have had a little more ground beef, I added another third jar of pizza sauce. My family loved the casserole."

"This was a very quick meal. I'd much rather just make pizza. Don't think I'll be making this much."
