This recipe is easy, the flavors are right on, and has the potential to be delicious. I learned 4 things: (1) do check your diced tomatoes to be sure they aren't canned in balsamic vinegar - ew (2) large pasta, like penne, sticks out of the "sauce" and hardens (3) this would fit in a 9x9 and keep everything moist and (4) everything is already cooked, so the 1 hour cooking time dried it out. Next time I'll use smaller pasta, put it in a 9x9, and only cook for 30 minutes, topping it with cheese in the last few minutes.

Excellent recipe for a cold winter day!

This was very good. I made it in a 9x9 pan, and used ground Italian sausage, since I had it on hand. It came out very spicy, next time I'll reduce the cayenne pepper by half

This was very tasty. Worth buying the ingredients if you don't happen to have the leftovers. I added cubed provolone cheese halfway through baking and sprinkled with shredded mozzeralla in the last few minutes. It was great.

I made this even though I did not have the leftovers. I liked it, something different to keep in mind when I do have leftovers. Thank you for the idea!

This was a very good casserole. It was a nice change from the obvious casserole recipes that are out there!
