I use leftover homemade spaghetti sauce with this recipe and it’s a winner in our home.

I was disappointed in this recipe as the directions have an error. When mixing the spaghetti sauce in the ground beef, use only 1/2 the amount! The recipe does not state this. It just says add sauce, so I added the whole jar. And when I got further along into the recipe, it says to add the remaining sauce. You only need half the sauce in the ground beef , as otherwise, it becomes too wet, which is what happened to me. Also, a full teaspoon of fennel is way too much. A half teaspoon would be just fine. I plan on making this recipe again with corrections on the spaghetti sauce and half the fennel and we'll see if it is better.

My family really liked this. I used a jarred sauce with sausage, added some chili flakes and basil and they ate it all up. A real nice change from the usual spaghetti and hardly any extra effort.

I have to give this a five star which is rare for me. It is going to be in my recipe binder. I did change it up a bit. I made the recipe as described, but in a small bowl I used cottage cheese, one egg, and added the cheese to the mixture. After placing the meat mixture, I put a small amount of the cheese mixture before rolling. All and all, a great recipe. Thank you for sharing.

I used spicy Italian sausage instead of beef and added a layer of pesto and sour cream. Turned out great!

Excellent. I made half the recipe and it was perfect for two.

Made these with ricotti added to the filling, just dabbed in on top of the meat sauce, yummie! Another Keeper from Taste of Homes!

Very good! Even my picky eater ate with us! I might try adding a little cottage cheese next time.

I made this just as the recipe requires. Hardly any flavor! I tossed all of them back in the pan, mixed up some more sauce along with way more spices/seasonings and reheated to salvage the rest of the meal. Plus they are super putzie and good luck getting much of the stuffing to actually stay in the noodle. Way more work than you get out of the taste. I would suggest just making a pan of lasagna.
