Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have made this recipe many times now and my family keeps asking for more. I have made this recipe many times now and my family keeps asking for more. I have added my own spices to give it a litte extra kick; anything from plain old salt n' pepper, to a dash of chili powder, or a couple dashes of onion salt. This recipe is very flexible and lets you get creative to make your family believe you have come up with something new yet again!! Try this one; I hope you family enjoys it as much as mine.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I made this recipe with spicy Italian sausage, marinara pasta sauce and colored rotini pasta. I made this recipe with spicy Italian sausage, marinara pasta sauce and colored rotini pasta. The sausage I bought came in links for the grill so I just cut the lining and removed the sausage. The recipe calls for a 1 lb of meat but I used 3 links which is about ¾ lb. Next time I am going to use less (½ lb) because it was still too much meat for me. Also I cooked my pasta separately, and then added it to the meat/sauce combo. I heated it up again and followed the rest of the recipe. I didn’t measure the mozzarella just stirred a small handful in, and then covered the top with some. One thing I forgot to do was season my meat, I am just a beginner cook and I sometimes forget. My fiancé’s only complaint was that it could have used some salt, which he added later. This recipe made more than enough food; I will make a smaller batch next time since it’s only the two of us. Also next time I will probably experiment with different sauces and meats.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I was looking for a recipe that I could use ricotta in, since I had a container in my fridge. I was looking for a recipe that I could use ricotta in, since I had a container in my fridge. I added onions, oregano, basil and freshparsley to my sauce, and I used more meat (ground beef) than the recipe called for. I also added parmesan and a fiesta blend of cheese to top it off. I will deffinately make this again.

I used elbow macaroni as my pasta and it took about 25 minutes rather than 15 but it was really easy to make and my dh called it a 'keeper' which we will make again.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from this was very bland. this was very bland. It definately needed something else. I won't be making it again. It's similar to another recipe on this site, which calls for you to bake it. I think it's called easy pasta italian bake - that one was great.

Like some of the previous makers I found the recipe to be very bland - even after adding spices! If I make it again I will likely change the meat to some sort of sausage and see if that makes a difference.
