Made a few modifications. Was pretty good. Added some italian seasoning and used only cup of mozzarella and added some parmesan. Next time I will use fresh mushrooms, the canned ones just didn't do it for me. Will def make again

I just simply didn't like it; it didn't appeal to my taste buds whatsoever :(

This is a great, quick dinner. I used ground turkey, low fat cheese and whole wheat pasta. I added a few garlic cloves in with the onion, and added plenty of basil, oregano and a little black pepper. I will definately make this again.

My family loves this recipe!!! It's quick, easy, and kid-friendly... all 4 of my kids will usually take seconds (even my 2-yr old will sit down and eat all her dinner without fussing). I sprinkle the cheese over the top instead of mixing it into the pasta though... I think it makes it look a little more appetizing.

Big hit w/ my friends. A little dry around the edges. Make sure to stir to prevent this about 10 minutes prior to end.

Well, what can I say? I made the recipe to the letter - ok, I added two cloves of garlic - and when I tasted it, I thought it was somewhat bland - but my husband raved! and then he raved some more. Then he raved again just in case I didn't get it before. He liked the flavor (I used chopped tomato and olive oil spaghetti sauce.) He liked it wasn't too cheesy. He liked it a whole bunch and he likes my cooking, but I've never heard him go on like this. So it gets five stars from me.

Simple, easy and tasty. I divide up and vacumn seal the left overs for individual "quick" meals. When it's time to use, I just cut a small slit in the bag and microwave on high for 5 minutes. Let stand for 5 more. Great for those nights when other plans fell through.

I love this recipe. I don't add the mushrooms, but I do add a packet of italian salad dressing mix, and some extra cheese on top. My picky husband loves it and it tastes great left over.
