Love this recipe. It is so versatile. I am a vegetarian and make it with spinach and mushrooms. Sometimes I use Artichoke hearts or sundried tomoto. But I make this a lot for the rest of my family, who eats meat and I change the ingredients to thier taste. My dad loves it with pepperoni, sausage and olives. I just layer this more then the recipe says to, almost like a lasagna but it is awesome overall.

I didn't like the combination of broccoli and the other ingredients. It would have been better with peppers, mushrooms, etc. I don't think I will make this again.

Instead of ground beef used Morningstar sausage crumbles because the girlfriend is a vegetarian. We 'browned' the crumbles with chopped red onion and green pepper before combinining with the sauce. Added diced mushroom while layering and turned out very tastey. The crust left something to be desired but still a fun new twist. Next time I may try to simmer the sauce longer to thicken it so it is less soupy. All in all a winnner!

I was watching Table For 12 the other night and the mom, Betty was making this..It looked so good so I found the recipe on here. I decided to make it tonight and it was absolutely delicious! Next time I am going to try it with mushroom, green pepper and onions. Easy, easy recipe!

I followed the recipe with the following exceptionsPrior to placing the top crust on the plate..........cover with lots of peporoni......added a 1/2 cup of 4 cheese mix.

This was really good! I used spinach, and a 4 Italian cheese blend, instead of the broccoli and mozzarella. Will definitely make this again. Yummy!

THis is very good! okay,so I made a 'few' changes,used regular Ragu sauce,no broccoli or spinach,(it may be good that way and I may try it someday but not now!) so I used Jimmy Dean Hot sausage,crumbled that up and added pepperoni and used Colby/monteray Jack cheese and added banana peppers,it turned out so good! there's just a handful left.

Great recipe, I made individual ones in small Corningware dishes - that way we could all have them our own way!!! They reheat so easy in the microwave or oven!!
