Pasta dishes are a favorite in our family. I changed the original recipe to suit our tastes...and we all think this comforting casserole is delicious. I like to accompany it with a tossed green salad. —Ruth Lee of Troy, Ontario

"I did not care for this, to be honest. I thought it was very bland, perhaps because I used mixed veggies instead of Italian blend? I also agree with other reviewers who said it was too soupy. And it's not good reheated because the corn flakes become mushy. On the plus side, it was quick & easy to make."

"Simple flavor, I just used chopped fresh broccoli as frozen Italian-blend vegetables. My 4 years old kids loved this dish. This is not bad recipe for something quick to cook and not expensive."

"This was okay. I like the overall taste, but I wonder if less milk would help out the soupiness. The veggies were also too "crisp" for me, but maybe leftovers will be better."

"Not bad. I don't know what Italian-blend veggies are, but I had plenty of fresh veggies on hand, so I used them rather than buy frozen ones. It's pretty good, but it needs to have a more substantial & thicker sauce. I plan to add another can of condensed soup next time, but it probably will make it less healthy."

"This was pretty simple to put together and tasted good. It took me awhile to make it because I couldn't find Italian blend vegetables. After a little bit of research, I discovered they are now marketed under Mediterranean blend."
