Prefer to mix it together rather than layer. But a HUGE hit with my family. This gets requested often. We leave out green pepper out of preferences.

Good, but to me it just tasted like a basic pasta and meat sauce. The cheese melted into the ground beef so it really wasn't noticeable or able to be tasted by the time the whole thing heated. Definitely wouldn't call this Pizza in a Pot.
