MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 27, 2016

"I thought this recipe had a wonderful flavor and mix of textures. With the 'foodie craze', some people feel they have to empty the spice rack . Then some go on to rate what is really their own recipe."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 4, 2015

"I agree with the folks who mentioned that this was on the bland side. I had extra spices on hand to mix in- red pepper flakes, oregano and basil, garlic powder and fresh black pepper. This recipe sounded great, but neither my husband or our two kids were wowed. Likely won't make again."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 2, 2015

"This was outstanding. I added mushrooms and green pepper with the onions. Then when I put everything in the slow cooker I added minced garlic, salt and oregano seasonings."

"This tastes just like pizza and it was loved by my family. it will be in the regular rotation."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 24, 2015

"Because others had mentioned a blandness is flavor, I added several diced garlic cloves when browning the beef, as well as dried basil and oregano in large quantities (like 1 TB). Even then it was only okay. Perfectly edible, nothing special. I think a spicy pizza sauce might be the key."
