So glad I found this recipe. Had all the ingredients to make a pizza, and my oven broke! This is the next best thing. I used the diced tomatoes with basil and garlic, and added some dried oregano, basil and Italian seasoning. Topped the whole dish with a mix of grated parmesan and mozzarella. Thanks for saving supper!

This dish had the density of paste. I followed the instructions, and shouldn't have. I liked all of the ingredients and thought it would be good...it wasn't. Won't be a next time, but, will create my own version using regular canned tomatoes...not stewed, no paste, and not letting it "simmer for 2 to 3 hours".

This was pretty good, *definitely* a kid pleaser. The only thing we changed was after making the sauce and noodles, we mixed it all together and baked it in a lazagna pan with mozzarella and parmesan cheses on top. It adds about 15 minutes to the prep/cook time, but is well worth it. Not the healthiest dish in the world, but a great substitution for the friday night pizza!

This is good. I used mushrooms, olives, salami, and hot sausage - then added a little mozzerella and parmesan on top. Thanks for the recipe!

This is so yummy! Makes a lot, so it's great for functions. I put it in a crockpot to keep it warm. I use one can of Italian tomato paste and one regular. I use one can of diced Italian tomatoes and one regular. I do not simmer it for 2 or 3 hours.
