Reviews for Sloppy Joe Pasta
"I made this tonight. I cut the recipe in half. I used ricotta cheese instead of cottage cheese (I use these interchangeably). I also had to make my own "sloppy Joe" pack. I generally make Rachel Rays Super Sloppy Joes. So I don't keep prepackaged mixes on hand. That's said food.com has a good recipe to sub out the packet if you don't have one in the house. My husband said it reminded him of a meal his nanny used to make growing up. So I think it is a winner."
"This recipe was great. The only thing I changed was the cheese. I added more than the recipe called for. My kiddos really enjoyed this!"
"Very good and the ingredients go very well together."
"I made this tonight. I shortened it a bit by getting a can of man which. I added onion and green pepper to meat. I also added a layer of fresh spinach to the layers. Very quick and inexpensive that was enjoyed"
"My mother has been making this for over 30 years..A few differences in the recipe: Mix the cottage cheese in after you add the Large Shell Noodles to the sauce. Also mix in about 1/2 cup sharp cheddar cheese. Bake for 35 - 40 Minutes then top with cheese to your liking bake additional 10-15 minutes. If you mix this with Ragu you won't have Sloppy Joe casserole. I usually double up on the recipe and serve with Salad. My family loves this and my husband loves the leftovers for lunch!"
"I originally found this recipe a couple of years ago in a Taste of Homes magazine and have been making it ever since. It's awesome and the kids really love this one as does everyone else. I always add a little parmesan in with the cheddar on top and it gives it just a little more depth."
"love this. One of the few casseroles I make that my husband actually requests."
"I am trying this tonight using a home made sloppy joe recipe. My kids will love it I am sure."
"I agree about it tasting like lasagna or a spaghetti bake. I will also use the jarred sauce next time (3 less ingredients to buy and store) and skip the extra steps and the dish will even be faster! It was tasty and easy-a new twist on spaghetti bake."
"We thought it tasted a lot like lasagna or a spaghetti bake. The flavor of the sauce is much like "Ragu". Next time I'm using the jarred sauce to save even more steps."
"I used ground turkey in place of the ground beef, and also used 12 oz. of low-fat cottage cheese. Instead of baking in the oven, I cooked it covered in the microwave for about 10 minutes. Very tasty."
"We liked it alot. Changed a couple of things, but very tasty!"
"Great flavor. Quick and easy!! My kind of meal."
"Loved this recipe since it was quick to throw together and an easy way to hide cottage cheese in. Similar to lasagna with a lot less work."
"Almost like a lazy lasagna. I made this for my FIL's birthday and it went over very well. I made it the day prior and then baked it in the oven just prior to serving and it was fine."
"I made this last night and it was a hit, although I didn't follow the recipe to a "T". I'm the only one in the family who likes cottage cheese, so I just served it on the side, instead of putting it into the recipe (the guys wouldn't have touched it if I had put it in). Also, we live in a small town with two grocery stores and the only one who sells sloppy joe mix in pouches was out of it, so I ended up buying Heinz sloppy joe sauce in a can and used that instead of the mix, tomato sauce, tomato paste and water. Even with that change, it was still excellent, although I do want to try it again as the recipe reads. We had it with corn, fried potatoes and croissants and everyone cleaned their plate. Definitely a keeper."
"I thought it was WONDERFUL!! I am always trying to make different dishes. My husband and I get tired of eating the same things and this is definitely a keeper. I love it! It is GREAT reheated for left overs too. I may change a few things to better suit my husband's taste, but for me personally I wouldn't change anything it has great flavor and is simple to make."
"I loved this recipe. It was very easy to put together, and was even better as leftovers. The cottage cheese makes it tasty and creamy. I'm making it for dinner tonite!"
"THE RECIPE CALLS FOR THE pasta TO BE COOKED AND DRAINED. YOU MUST NOT HAVE READ THE INGREDIENTS. THIS TO pinkhottie."
"i noted the recipe said to cook and drain pasta. pinkhottie must have missed reading that."
