Bottom-line, don't be afraid to just use what you have in your kitchen. I really liked this dish and it was relatively easy and I made a lot of modifications because...I just didn't have the ingredients! I used left-over spaghetti and a 9"x9" glass dish as I didn't have a pie dish. I didn't have the Parmesan cheese or eggs either! THEN! I didn't have ground beef so I used the left over filet mignon from a few nights and since it had been already cooked, I let didn't add it to the onion mix right away. After the onion mix was browned, I added the finely chopped filet mignon and once they were mixed nicely, I added the tomato mixture. I didn't have the green bell pepper (plus...I don't like them anyway), and, I quadrupled the garlic. I used 24oz of stewed tomatoes. AND! I didn't have the tomato paste! SO! Once everything was mixed, I followed the same rules as listed, but let the dish sit for 10 minutes before serving it so that the sauce tomato sauce had a moment to firm up. If I have time, I'll just create my own recipe. It was really good! I hope this helps.
