    This is a super easy way to use up leftover pot roast. A rotini pasta works well in this dish, but actually most any pasta you have on hand can be substituted. You can also easily substitute a small can of diced tomatoes for the fresh ones, or add a small can of fire-roasted tomatoes for a bit of a kick!

    I prepared this delicious 5-star dinner tonight. I followed the recipe exactly. Well, almost. I didn't have any left over roast beef but no problem. I picked up a package of precooked roast beef in the refrigerated packaged deli section. Perfect. We ate the whole thing. It serves 2 nicely. I highly recommend this delicious recipe.

    My husband really enjoyed this! I substituted ground beef, and used a penne-type pasta noodle. I also added a little Worcestershire sauce and a dash of hot sauce. To me it seemed a little dry looking; I don’t eat meat, so I told my husband to add a bit of tomato sauce if he thought needed, which he did. He ate two servings and loved it!

    I tripled the recipe and added peppers, mushrooms, 1/2 cup beef broth, 1tbls or 2 of Worcestershire sauce, a few shakes of red pepper flakes and garlic. The meat soaked up the flavors and tasted great.

    This is a very quick easy to fix "no fuss"meal....great with leftover roast or even beef luncheon meat! Now part of my regular recipe rotation...a winner!

    Recipe was easy--my husband said it is a keeper and he doesn't like to try new things. I didn't have fresh tomatoes, so put some unsalted canned chopped tomatoes with some juice. Worked well also.

    The only thing I added was about 1/4 cup of fresh shredded basil, and we just sprinkled the cheese on individual servings. My whole family loved this, and with whole wheat pasta it is very healthy!
