Reviews forItalian Hot Dish
"I tried this recipe again, instead of having the pasta at the bottom. i mixed it with the meat and sauce. added extra cheese and mushrooms. much better. this is a great recipe, but more bland than how I make my other pasta dishes. The serving size was perfect for two people. I will make this again but add a little kick"
"I thought that this was tasteless. It needs something to kick it up a notch for sure. My husband didn't like it at all."
"Not bad. It is a little bland. Next time I am going to try italian sausage"
"I've been making this recipe for many years. I got it from Taste of Home magazine years ago. It's still a favorite in our home. Everyone loves it!"
"Very easy to make, but I think I will add some sun-dried tomatoes to my next batch to increase the flavor a bit."
"I love this dish idea. I change almost every recipe so I do Italian seasoned ground turkey (that way you actually don't need to add spices and it's got lots of flavor) I add minced garlic when browning the turkey and veggies. I also use a whole bag of mozzarella cheese on top and I only bake for like 25 minutes and then take the lid off for 10 more minutes. I also over cook so all the ingredients are doubled in my bake. But everyone in my house loves this dish!!!"
"kids liked it more than I did. a bit bland"
"Absolutely fabulous!! I changed the hamburger to half sausage and half turkey and instead of using tomato sauce used spaghetti sauce and it was magnificoo!"
"this! is a comfort food."
