This was a great starter recipe for something easy and quick during the week... I did add green peppers,onions garlic and mushrooms and my family enjoyed it .
This was fairly fast and easy to put together and worked out for a weeknight meal. We didn't care much for it though and it was okay, just not something we want to have again. This is one we chose not to keep the leftovers, sorry :(
Very tasty! Can be done without ricotta cheese, but it's going to be less moist. I've done it before, adding about 1/4-1/2 cup milk in the place of ricotta.
great and easy recipe! While the noodles were boiling and the oven was warming up I mixed up the following: 1 lb. ground beef (undrained) 1c. chopped onions 1c. sliced mushrooms 1/2 tsp minced garlic dash of pepper Also, save some cheese for the topping before covering and putting in the oven. Will definitely make this again!
delicious! I'm making it for my family tonight...I will add one pound of ground beef though to this recipe!!!!
I added hamburger and fresh onion/garlic. Delicious served with garlic/cheese bread. Thank you!
The first time I made this dish I followed the original recipe and I thought it was a bit too cheesy. So when I made it again tonight, I used half the amount of all the chesses except mozz; and nearly twice the amount tomato sauce. I also added half a teaspoon each of onion powder, garlic powder, and sweet basil. It was excellent! It was indeed "hearty," I didn't feel the need for any side dishes and it still fed 3 college aged men.
Wonderful dish. My only change was using more ricotta cheese than it called for. I buy the ricotta in the tub and I just use the entire tub, I'm sure it isn't much more than the cup called for but it sure gave it a creamy texture. Yum.
