"This was absolutely awful. I'm glad I only made 1/2 the recipe, because the rest went in the trash."
"This is a fantastic casserole & I wished I could give it more than 5 stars! For those reviewers that gave it less than 5 & think that is not tasty enough for them, why don't they submit their own recipes instead of giving a yummy recipe like this less stars!Nancy, thank you so much for sharing your love of cooking with us all!"
"To justify "Pizza" in the recipe title, there need to be some changes: pizza sauce instead of spaghetti sauce, & Italian or regular sausage for some or all of the ground beef. Italian seasoning would help too."
"Loved this! I halved it since it's just me, shared it with a friend, and we both devoured it. I will make this again, it's so easy!!"
"Our 4-H club used this recipe for a Senior Luncheon for 70 senior citizens. It's easy to make,tasty, and feeds a crowd well. It was a hit! Don't be afraid to add more sauce as it is cooking."
