"Made this last night and the whole family loved it! Great flavor and very easy. I ended up not having any fresh tomatoes, so I drained a can of diced tomatoes and tossed those in. It still came out great."

"The seasoning in this receipe is so good and it's such a verstile dish. I used the veggie spiral pasta (that's all I had) and used carrots, corn, green beans and peas in place of the zuchini or squash, as my husband won't eat them."

"I always modify recipes to fit what I have and to our tastes. I could not find any zucchini in the stores so I left it out. Instead of garlic powder, I added minced garlic to taste and I also added 1 tsp of cumin. I never add salt to a recipe so that was left out as well. This is a very flavorful recipe. We never have leftovers when I make this."

"I'm the queen of changing recipes slightly when I don't have the exact ingredients. I swapped out the yellow pepper and zucchini for a 2 cup mix of celery, red pepper, fresh mushrooms. I cooked the celery with the ground beef so it could get softer.

The 2 cups of chopped tomatoes I used 2 14oz cans of diced tomatoes/drained. I added more cheese to make it more cheesy to our taste. The seasoning in the original recipe listing is what makes this all work well together! It's fabulous!"
