I used: 3 cups of penne pasta, added a small can of diced tomatoes, just half a big onion, mozzarella cheese instead of cheddar. First I sauteed the onion and mushrooms with 2 tbsp olive oil and 1 tsp of minced garlic. Then I added the meat (I used 1 lb. extra lean ground beef because I didn't wanted to drain fat). I added the Italian seasoning to the meat while browning. When the beef was brown, I added the jar of spaghetti sauce, a small can of diced tomatoes and the bacon bits. I stirred and let it simmer in low heat for awhile. Then mixed it with the penne pasta (I used 3 cups, instead of 4) on the baking dish and topped with lots of Mozzarella cheese, 'cause my family likes it cheesy! Very tasty. I will be making this again. :)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Like others, I found this recipe to be too dry as is. Like others, I found this recipe to be too dry as is. I add another half jar of sauce, diced tomatoes, and of course more ground beef to balance it all out. I also add some cream cheese and grated parmesan to the hot noodles (the flavored cooking cremes work great, too) and heat everything up with a little minced garlic and crushed red pepper to taste. I always put a final thin layer of the meat mixture on top, and use only mozzarella or provolone. Good dish for a crowd or potluck!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This was a family hit! This was a family hit! I have a husband and 3 grown sons who came to dinner and their were no leftovers! Next time I'll have to double this recipe. I used 6 slices of thick bacon, chopped and cooked until crisp to add for a more substantial and flavorfull meal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have made this recipe numerous times and my family loves it! I have made this recipe numerous times and my family loves it! The only thing I change is the amount of pasta sauce. I increase it by 1/2 (12 oz. more). It tended to be too dry and this really made a difference. It is very good and I recommend it for families!

I made this for dinner and it was wonderful and then the leftovers smelled so good in the fridge that I was having some for a snack later and then for lunch and dinner the next day. The bad thing about this is that I can't stop eatting it!

Very tasty but it tends to be a little on the dry side for me and my husband especially for leftovers, so next time I'll just use less pasta. I also don't feel the need for the bacon bits so I leave that out as well.

This was very good; however, I think next time I will omit the Italian seasoning...it was a bit over-powering and I think with using the Ragu Garden Style pasta sauce there was plenty of seasoning already.
