Reviews for Spaghetti Casserole Bake
"I thought this had spaghetti pasta until I was halfway through. However, I went with it and made it as instructed, excluding olives. It was too liquid-y and not visually appealing. The taste was saved by the onions and garlic. I won't be making this again. It would be much better with pasta and not canned stuff."
"Delicious!! I only had 1 26 oz jar of sauce to use, and it worked out fine. I didn't have any mushrooms, which I was upset about, but it turned out fine. I can't wait to eat the frozen dish!"
