MY REVIEW

"This is a family hit. I use Italian chopped tomatoes and no green pepper."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 20, 2013

"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!"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 4, 2013

"Im tempted to try spaghetti squash instead of noodles. make sure you let it sit for the time specified after you take it out of the oven or else it will fall apart"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 9, 2013

"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!"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 9, 2012

"PS - I also used roasted tomato's and paste with basil, oregano and garlic instead of plain.  So I didn't have issues with the flavor.
