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.

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!!!

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!
