MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 22, 2014

Instead of spaghetti sauce I used pizza sauce. I also sautéed spinach and added it in. It turned out delicious! The advantage is you can add all the toppings you like!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 4, 2012

The bones of this recipe are really good. I made mine with left over bolognese sauce and no mushrooms since my family won't even look at them. It tasted good but I think it needed more sauce on the bottom to go with the biscuity topping. Otherwise, the taste was really good and it came together super easy. A great quicky casserole!

My family enjoyed this very much. Goes together fast and lends itself to different toppings.
