Rated 4 out of 5 by from This was fast, easy, and tasty. This was fast, easy, and tasty. Better yet, I had everything on hand. I read the reviews (in the midst of cooking...ooops!) that said it was bland, so I added in some Italian seasoning and garlic powder. I used hot Italian turkey sausage and regular old mozzarella plus some Parmesan cheese. It worked for us! In the future, I'll probably also add some mushrooms. Gourmet meal? Not so much, but fast, easy, and tasty works for me!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A good basic recipe. A good basic recipe. A nice change from hamburger pasta casseroles. A little bland, so I added some oregano, basil and a little minced garlic. Everyone came back for seconds.
