    I doubled the amount of onion and oregano, and used Italian blend cheese, increased to 1 cup. Added was a can of corn and about 1/3 cup of basil. The result was good but nothing special enough to make me want to make it again.

    Delicious! I agree with the other reviews that the tomato soup gave it a different and unique flavor. A great change of pace. Super easy too!! I did use a little extra onion, cheese, and oregano.

    Pretty basic, but good! I used penne, not sure what mostaccioli is

    It was okay. Easy to make but a little simplistic on taste. I added corn for a more complete meal.

    A good, simple basic recipe which can be changed with additional ingredients if desired. We wound up adding a whole cup of cheese as opposed to the 1/4 cup because it just wasn't enough for our family's taste. I liked how quick this was to put together, and we liked the combination of tomato sauce with tomato soup as opposed to regular jarred pasta sauce. Will make again.

    I would add garlic and Italian Sausage the other comment to add ricotta/cream cheese is more a Lasagna casserole which has already been done keep what you have just add different kinds of meat.

    I think that if you put a layer of ricotta/cream cheese filling in the middle and added some mozzarella to the topping, it would be better.
