This was delicious! The only ingredient adjusting I did was instead of using beef I used three GardenBurger Flame Grilled Patties (My husband & I are vegetarian). The directions forgot to tell you to add the garlic so I added it when I went to simmer everything. I layered it like I would lasagna. Noodles sauce cheese. Noodles sauce cheese. I will definitely make this again! Read More

This just takes too long to make. I can go to McDonalds and eat the meal before this is done. It doesn't taste bad but for a quick meal...it's too much. It's almost 2.5 hours due to the prep work the stewing and the baking...sorry Read More

I sometimes omit ingredients I don't have on-hand like green onion and it still turns out well. I mix shredded cheddar in with the cream cheese mixture and also layer some on top - yum! Read More

Overall this is a good dish. I did not feel that it was saucy enough so I added a can of tomato sauce in addition to the crushed tomatoes and tomato paste. The sauce by itself would make great spaghetti sauce. I would recommend not to over cook the noodles. They do the best if slightly undercooked. Read More

I love this recipe. The only things that I do different are using a jar of spaghetti sauce instead of tomatoes and tomato paste. I also use white onion instead of green in the cream cheese/sour cream mixture and add italian seasoning to it. I have also topped it with cheddar cheese. Lots of stuff you can do with it and it's all yummy!!! Read More

This was a very good recipe. I loved the seasonings used in the meat sauce. The white sauce that went on top of the meat sauce was wonderful and decadent. I made home made egg noodles. This did not add to the recipe as I hoped it would. Save yourself some time and buy the packaged noodles. Next time I think Iwill double the white sauce and mix half of it with the noodles...then layer as directed. Also as far as the directions go I always saute and drain my meat before I add my vegetables. This way I don't throw any flavor of the vegetables out with the grease. Also I used Romano cheese instead of Parmesan. Thanks Donna. Read More

This recipe was excellent! I used hot hungarian paprika for the top and in the tomato mixture which gave it a little kick. Instead of making one large 13x9 pan I made 3 smaller 8x8's. Really yummy! Read More

This was excellent. Thickness of sauce and texture were perfect. I skipped the mushrooms (I don't like them) and substitued Boca vegetarian 'burger' crumbles for the ground beef. Will definately make again! Read More

We won't make this again. Good flavor but runny and with a horrid texture like a great pasta dish put through a blender. Recipe needs work. Read More
