This hearty casserole looks and tastes a lot like lasagna, but it's quicker to prepare since you don't have to layer it. It disappears fast when I share it at a gathering. Served with rolls and a salad, it makes an easy and satisfying supper. -Harriet Stichter, Milford, Indiana

"I would get more creative next time and add garlic, more Mozzarella in it, red pepper, and Parmesan. Also some Italian spice. I used Classico roasted garlic and four cheese. It was very good. I halved it and it was still a huge dish, good for 6?"

"Used 1/2 ground beef and 1/2 sweet Italian ground sausage! Adds lots of additional flavor along with some garlic and a dash of Italian seasoning!"

"This is a good, simple dish. However, to perk up the flavor, add 1 or 2 cups of pizza sauce to the recipe or some Italian seasoning. It really does wonders for it. Toss in some red pepper flakes if you like a bit of zest in your food."
