"My family loves it! I used 1/2 pound of beef and added hot peppers more for flavor to suit my family's taste buds."
"I used gluten free rotini because that was all I had in the pantry. Yummy!"
"This is a family hit. I use Italian chopped tomatoes and no green pepper."
"We really liked this recipe. I did change it a bit by using my recipe for the meat sauce. It came out very watery, so not sure if I my meat sauce was too thin for this type of recipe, so the noodles didn't really bake into a crust. Will definitely have it again!"
"Amazing and tastes so good! Although you could easily substitute Prego or another spaghetti sauce in a pinch when time is short. I have picky eaters so I had to remove the onion and green peppers for them, but I make one for the adults with the onion and peppers. YUM!"
