"I used mini pepperonis and Italian sausage and undercooked the pasta. I also added some Italian spices and doubled the mushroom soup. I mixed everything together the day before and kept it in the frig overnight. The next morning I warmed it in the crock pot for a few hours as indicated in the recipe (stirring occasionally). I received compliments and for how easy it was to assemble ahead of time, I'd call this recipe a success!"

"I added spices like other people suggested, plus I substituted the hamburger meat with Italian sausage. I took it to a church potluck and people raved about it."

"So, so good. I used cream of onion soup. I don't like mushroom. It was really very good. I'll make this again."

"I thought this recipe had a wonderful flavor and mix of textures. With the 'foodie craze', some people feel they have to empty the spice rack . Then some go on to rate what is really their own recipe."

"I agree with the folks who mentioned that this was on the bland side. I had extra spices on hand to mix in- red pepper flakes, oregano and basil, garlic powder and fresh black pepper. This recipe sounded great, but neither my husband or our two kids were wowed. Likely won't make again."
