In a word, different. Will probably make this again, but not for a long time. As my husband said, "It isn't at the top of the list." I sliced the potatoes and carrots very thin so I knew they would cook in the alloted time. Also added a layer of sliced green peppers which gave it a nice flavor. And if at all possible, use fresh or frozen peas, not canned.
A complete disaster. After an hour in the oven, the rice was still crunchy, the potatoes weren't entirely cooked, the sauce had baked away to nothing, and the sausage was getting burned. It never even made it to the table. Not recommended. Sorry.
So I rated it a 4 because this recipe is very close to my mother's Seven Layer Casserole. The best way (in my opinion) to make this - use 1 lb hamburger (brown first), a can of diced tomatoes and about 1 Tbs of water. No peas, No tomato soup, No cans of water. Layer the same order as noted in the recipe, although on top of my hamburger I add more potatoes and carrots, then salt and pepper to taste. Drizzle the water in over the top of it all. It's not a blow-your-socks-off meal, but it's easy, it's hearty, you probably have all the ingredients. Plus it hits the spot at the end of a cold winter day.
I cooked the hamburger first and added a can of mushrooms and a can of green chilis. It seemed a little dry. I would definalty make it again, but would add more tomato sauce or more water.
My family enjoys this every time I make it! The only thing I change is cooking the meat and rice beforehand. I usually use rice left over from another meal. I have used a varity of Veggies as my layers and usually it more then seven. I was a little unsure of the peas but it all works! I think the problems the other reviews were having are these....... They used hamburger and not pork sausage! And tomato sauce not Tomato Soup. Both of which can make a huge differance! I am making this again tonight and will be using hamburger because that is what I have. But I plan on adding some extra seasoning to make up for it. My kids love this! But they love Salad too! I guess my kids are just smart like that!
This was just okay. Actually had a rather gloppy consistancy, but it tasted alright. I probably wouldn't make it again, though.
Not too bad. Mine turned out to be a 6 layer cause I forgot the carotts. Don't know if that would have made a difference. (Don't think so).
Took way longer to cook. I increased the temp to 375 and it is probably going to take 60-75 min instead of 45 min. Also, I'd recommend cooking the rive beforehand as well as the pork to speed up cooking time. I also added zucchini which added a nice extra flavor.
