I thought that this recipe tasted just like you are eating spaghetti sauce with meat. I think it needs LESS spaghetti sauce and maybe more crescent rolls? It did not taste close to an upside down pizza. Read More

I make this recipe using 2 cups of shredded cheddar cheese instead of the parmesian. I've also used ground turkey instead of the ground beef or thrown in some crumbled browned italian sausage with the ground beef. Use a 14 ounce jar of pizza sauce instead of the spaghetti sauce (Ragu quick sauce is great). Mix the brown ground meat with the sauce and one beaten egg (save 1 Tbs of the egg). I place the meat mixture in the dish and layer the cheeses over it. Roll the crescent rolls out to completely cover the ingredients and brush the Tbs. of egg over the dough to get a golden crust.

Great concept-After reading all the reviews I made a few changes. I cooked a a full box of pasta placed it in the bottom of the pan & mixed it with the sauce. Baked for 20 minutes. Added shredded mozzarella & more sauce. Layered croissants and sprinkled with parmesean cheese. Baked additional 20 minutes... Excellent and filling! Thanks! Read More

I don't rate it unless I think and know it's five stars all around. My family loved this recipe! What an easy meal and saved me a lot of time!! I added some turkey pepperoni and wished we had more ingredients to add. I will plan to do that next time! This one is a keeper. Read More

I like that it was quick and easy but I didn't care much for this. Maybe it was the spaghetti sauce I used. Another problem I had with this is that I could only get one layer of meat sauce in a 9X13 pan. I would have had to double the meat sauce to make two layers. It probably would have worked for an 8X8 size pan but then the cresent rolls would have been too long. On top of all that I had to take some Zantac after eating it. Read More

This is a wondeful dish! It is very quick easy and scrumptious!! To give it a little more pizazz I added a small jar of sliced mushrooms and a can of artichoke hearts that had been drained and chopped. For those who like with with a kick next time I would probably add a dash of tabasco and jalapenos! Thanks for the great recipe Kim!: - ) Read More

A great basic recipe that you can add to. I added mushrooms some chopped pepperoni and green pepper and the Easy Pizza Sauce III recipe I found on this website. I also tried to make it a little less caloric with fat free cheese and low fat crescent rolls. All in all we really liked it and will have it again. Read More
