"I followed the recipe exactly as written the first time I made this and while it wasn't bad - it was actually better the second night after a quick warming in microwave - it could use a tweak or two.

Your own favorite meat sauce recipe could be substituted for the one used here, but it did have a pleasant tang. I would have preferred it to give the dry amount of noodles rather than the cooked amount; I cooked an entire bag just to be sure I had enough and used only two-thirds of the cooked noodles. Also, if you don't put them directly in the 13x9 pan after cooking, the noodles become a solid mass very quickly - tossing them with a beaten egg or a dash of butter would help I think. And finally, because the noodle portion was quite bland and dry, I'd pour the cheese sauce over the noodles first, then add the meat sauce, and top with shredded cheese, possibly an Italian cheese blend or just plain mozzarella.
So again, really not bad as written but a few small changes would help. The Spaghetti pie casserole Recipe (with 33 reviews) found on this site might be a better choice; I'm trying that next."
