"Big hit at our house! My only change was using fresh mushrooms, sauteed before adding."

"This recipe is awesome! I fixed it tonight for the first time and my husband and I thought it was excellent. I did use 3 cups of pasta instead and left out the mushrooms. I also used 2 8-oz cans of tomato sauce instead of the spaghetti sauce. And I put 2 cups of mozarella on top instead of 1. I will definitely make this again. Plus this makes a lot so we can get at least 2 more meals out of it- talk about a budget meal!"
