I made this using Italian sausage and it was great. My husband loved it.

I agree with the comments of not enough flavor. I made it as written. I will make again but use Italian sausage instead of ground beef. Maybe a little more oregano. I might try a little chopped pepperoni too. This has potential.

This is a great dish for a busy night and satisfies our need for good pasta with a mellow "not too tomatoe-ee" flavor. You can tweak as needed for spicier or not...love it!

A little cayenne and this is the bees knees.

Pretty standard baked pasta dish. Very simple to tweak to any family's liking. My husband doesn't like red sauce of any kind so I use an alfredo/ white sauce instead. I love baked pasta either way. Win/Win!

Nice but not enough spice for this New England family. Perhaps a bit small but we did enjoy it. I will tweek.

I thought this dish was really good. It was simple to make it, although it took a little longer than I expected. I mixed the pasta and sauce together and stirred some of the cheese in. I love cheese so I added some extra.

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.
