Made this for recipe group and based on the ingredients I was pretty sure Hubby would enjoy it as a comforting meal. Simple to prepare and easy to follow directions…I did follow them exactly but if I were to make it again I would likely mix the pasta sauce in with the meat instead of the pasta… I did add some mushrooms since I had some on hand. Thanks for a very nice one dish meal recipe.
Good. Nothing exceptional. I added a lot more seasoning.
Recipe Group Selection: 10, January 2015 ~ This was a nice dinner. I chose to use spaghetti noodles, as that is what I had on hand. Because we enjoy the taste of sauteed onions, I chopped rather than minced. I melted the cream cheese with the meat and onion mixture to make sure the cream cheese completely melted. This worked well for me and then I added the mixture to the pasta and sauce mixture. I split the casserole in to 2 dishes and shared one with my parents. They enjoyed this dish too.
Simple and delicious! The only thing I did differently was build it more like another casserole I make - I mixed the pasta and the cream cheese (and added some green onions for fun) and spread that in the bottom of the casserole dish. I simmmered the sauce with the meat and seasonings for a few minutes and then layered that on top of the pasta in the dish. It was a hit with all 6 members of my family, and that is no easy task!
Recipe Group: This was nummy, the cream cheese adds a nice touch. Next time I may not bother to throw it in the oven though, unless I made it ahead like I did last night. I used mini farfalle because that's what I had, and some 'no sugar added' sauce from the cupboard. Easy and everyone had seconds, thanks for a great recipe!
Made tonight for Recipe Group. I omitted the red pepper flakes (personal taste) and doubled the cheese, otherwise made as directed. Easy, quick and tasty.
My sons play sports, which means rushed dinner.... This is great and filling for boys!
Not bad, I season my ground beef the same way no matter what I'm using it for and so I did not find this lacking flavor!.
