Very good and much easier than messing with lasagna noodles. The whole family asked me to put this in the rotation. I used double the noodles and mozzarella cheese. I also used cottage cheese instead of ricotta. I also added a little more sauce. I layered pasta/cheese mix/sauce/pasta/cheese mix/sauce/pasta/sauce/mozz cheese.

Recipe needs a lot more flavor (oregano, parsley, basil, cayenne pepper flakes), unless, of course, those ingredients are included in the sauce you use. In addition, I usually add cook at least 1/2 lb. Sweet Italian Sausage (casings removed) along with my chopped beef. For easier "layering", I'd suggest using Rigatoni pasta in place of the Penne. Just a personal preference.

made this for a crowd and it was a hit! Trick is to prepare the night before and refrigerate so flavors blend. I also sprinkle each layer with garlic powder. Delicious!

I love this recipe. It is one of my go-to meals during the week. It has the same great taste as lasagna but you don't have to mess with the difficult lasagna noodles. I up the meat and pasta to a pound each, add a little more sauce and mozzarella and cook it in a 13X9 pan. Delicious!!

This was a good recipe~ was looking for a "lasagna" recipe,but wanted to use penne pasta instead, since it is what I had on hand. These are the additions and changes that I made (only to suit our taste on experience/ not because of any possible flawsn seen in your recipe). I added 2 tablespoons of the zesty dry italian seasoning to the meat, as well as fresh sliced mushrooms, while it browned.... and then fresh sliced zucchini. I mixed some of the pasta sauce with the noodles (3/4 lb) of penne, laid it at bottom of baking pan. I then spread the ricotta mixture on top of that, put remaining meat sauce as next layer, and lastly the mozzarella with a few shakes of parmesean .

Very easy and good I would recommend covering with foil before putting in oven so your noddles don't end up crunchy I also used 1 pound of ground beef I felt like it needed more sauce though.

Really good and easy. I added about 1/3 c. chopped onion and a clove of minced garlic with the ground beef for extra flavor. Also covered with foil before baking as others suggested to keep moisture in. Thanks for sharing.

Delicious! This is a new family favorite!! I do not have a 2.5 qt (approx 11x7) baking dish, so I increased the amount of penne to 1 lb, and ground beef to 1 lb to make it fit into a 13x9 pan.
