Made a few modifications. Was pretty good. Added some italian seasoning and used only cup of mozzarella and added some parmesan. Next time I will use fresh mushrooms the canned ones just didn't do it for me. Will def make again Read More

This is a great quick dinner. I used ground turkey low fat cheese and whole wheat pasta. I added a few garlic cloves in with the onion and added plenty of basil oregano and a little black pepper. I will definately make this again. Read More

My family loves this recipe!!! It's quick easy and kid-friendly... all 4 of my kids will usually take seconds (even my 2-yr old will sit down and eat all her dinner without fussing). I sprinkle the cheese over the top instead of mixing it into the pasta though... I think it makes it look a little more appetizing. Read More

Well what can I say? I made the recipe to the letter - ok I added two cloves of garlic - and when I tasted it I thought it was somewhat bland - but my husband raved! and then he raved some more. Then he raved again just in case I didn't get it before. He liked the flavor (I used chopped tomato and olive oil spaghetti sauce.) He liked it wasn't too cheesy. He liked it a whole bunch and he likes my cooking but I've never heard him go on like this. So it gets five stars from me. Read More

Simple, easy and tasty. I divide up and vacumn seal the left overs for individual "quick" meals. When it's time to use, I just cut a small slit in the bag and microwave on high for 5 minutes. Let stand for 5 more. Great for those nights when other plans fell through. Read More

Big hit w/ my friends. A little dry around the edges. Make sure to stir to prevent this about 10 minutes prior to end. Read More

I love this recipe. I don't add the mushrooms but I do add a packet of italian salad dressing mix and some extra cheese on top. My picky husband loves it and it tastes great left over. Read More

This is so simple to make. I was originally confused by what kind of pasta mostaccioli is--turns out it's penne, but when I was at the grocery nobody knew what that was so I ended up with campanelle (which was the frilly-est one available). I liked the extra twirl over penne. I added one packet of Good Seasonings Zesty Italian when cooking the meat, and used 4oz of fresh mushrooms instead of canned. I put 1/2 the cheese on top. I also used a Corningware deep white circular dish and kept the glass lid on until the last 10 min of cooking. This kept the edges moist and let the cheese brown at the end. Read More
