Very satisfying! I modified it some. I added diced onion and fresh garlic to the ground beef in the beginning. I used Rotel diced tomatoes with green chili,as well as the red pepper flakes, (we like things spicy) and I added mushrooms too. I also added an extra 1/2 C Parmesan cheese. Next time I will use Italian sausage AND add spinach.
Delicious! I did modify the recipe a little bit. I used Italian sausage instead of ground beef & used Italian style diced tomatoes. I also mixed in 6 oz cooked spinach before adding the topping in the last step.
Very Good and easy! I made some changes to the recipe and used hamburger & hot italian sausage, seasoned tomatoes, sharp cheddar cheese and no red pepper flakes. I Also added a 4oz. can of mushroom pieces & a 16oz. can of cannellini beans. My daughter & I both loved it and will be making it again. Next time I may try adding frozen vegetables. Thanks for the recipe!
Super easy meal to make. Seasonal camping in an RV and is an easy meal to make in a camper. Also great for pot-luck.
It was pretty good but lacked a lot of flavor. Next time wll try to spice it up some.
