I made this using a pound of ground beef and used rotini pasta. To the beef i added a small chopped onion, salt/pepper, minced garlic, garlic powder and some italian seasoning and it came out so good! =) Will make again!!!

This fit the bill when I needed to make something carb-a-licious at the last minute with a very limited pantry. My only changes were to use 2 cups of cheese, add one can of diced tomatoes and a full box of pasta (which may or may not be 5 cups cooked).

My husband was skeptical of this recipe but he had to admit it was really good. This is a keeper for us as there is no meat added.

I love the simplicity of this recipe. I use fresh mozzarella and I shred it myself, which I recommend over the pre-shredded stuff in the bag, it makes a big different in my opinion. I tossed some extra dried basil into the sauce. This is quick and easy!

I made this last night. I used penne pasta, and used a bit more cheese. I also added about 2 tablespoons of cottage cheese to the pasta sauce (as I do with lasagne). After I baked it I sprinkled it with parmesean cheese. I made it for 3 teenage boys, and their exact words were "this is amazing". Great meal!

I loved this recipe. I used fresh cheeses and even took the time to grate them. It is worth the prep time. I also didn't use the recommended sauce....I used my own favorite traditional sauce. I am totally making this again. My husband also loved it.

Made this for dinner last night. It was quick and surpringly better than I was expecting. I doubled the amount of cheese mixed in & used rigatoni pasta instead. Leftover were very good today for lunch!
