Delicious and extremely easy! I did not have any crescent rolls, so used tater tots instead, and I didn't have italian sausage, so used the bulk pork breakfast sausage, and it was really good! Other than that, I made the recipe as given. Will definitely make it again!! Thanks Michele! Read More

Made this and maybe it was the frozen vegetables that were in it, but it was only ok. Next time, I think I will use some fresh vegetables and maybe some biscuits instead of the crescent rolls. It was just missing something. Read More

I didn't have the exact ingredients available; but this is a great base recipe. Here is what I did: Browned the following: 12oz. Hot Italian Sausage (bulk) 8oz. Ground Beef 1 Orange Bell Pepper - chopped 1/2 large onion diced 1 heaping tbsp minced garlic I didn't have any frozen mixed veggies so I added the following: 5oz fresh sliced carrot 5oz fresh chopped celery 6oz frozen corn (thawed) 1 Fresh Jalapeno (chopped) 4 Roma Tomatos (chopped) Increased Oregano to 1/2 tsp and Black Pepper to 1/2 tsp I also didn't have a full 16 ounces for Spaghetti sauce So I added 13oz. Spaghetti sauce with about 3 ounces of water. I topped this with a can of Immaculate Baking crescent rolls; since these are dairy free (and wonderful!). This came out delicious! Thank you Michelle!

This is a new family favorite! I prefer the cheese layer underneath the dough topping so it stays soft. And the sweeter dough varieties that Pillsbury has are even tastier on top! Read More

My family loved this especially my hubby! I've made some changes but as always I use most recipes as a base and do my own thing. I always cook things separate and mix them together later. So I cooked the mixed vegetables in some vegetable stock and cooked them to about 90% set aside. I used beef sausage instead of the Italian sausage. I also used the crescent dough on the bottom as well. I rolled the dough out in the pan and cooked it for about 20 minutes and put the mixture on top of the cooked dough. Then I put the cheese on top of the mixture and then put another layer of crescent dough on top and spread a tablespoon of butter on top of the dough. This was delicious! I was thinking maybe next time I'll add some sour cream to this mixture that seem to be a good addition to this recipe. Great recipe Michele! Read More

This is definately a keeper. I did a few things different. I ussed a pound of chicken sausage and I seasoned the meat mixture with garlic and onion powder and adobo. I used a jar of chunky green pepper and mushroom spaghetti sauce. Do add little water like a 1/4 cup to the jar and shake so you can get all the sauce. Lastly I used colby jack cheese. Family loved it... Read More
