A great super easy meal to cook during the week that packs a lot of flavor! My DH went back for seconds and wants this to be on my menu rotation. I did not make any changes to the recipe followed it to the "T". Thank you for sharing!

I made this recipe on 3/24/13 for mine and my SO's dinner,but most importantly for the " Billboard Recipe Tag Game ". :) Due to what was on hand,a couple of changes were made to the recipe. I didn't have garlic cloves,but used about 2 teaspoons of garlic powder.For the green pepper, I subbed about 2 tablespoons of green/red freeze-dried peppers.Also, instead of a regular can of diced tomatoes,I used the same size can of diced tomatoes that were seasoned with basil,oregano,and garlic.After mixing together the sauce and pasta,I placed half of the pasta/beef mixture into a deep 11x 7 inch pan.Then I placed half of the mozzarella cheese on top and covered that with the remaining pasta/beef mixture.Then covered that with the remaining mozzarella and parmesan. For me, the baking time was "Spot On".As I was preparing the rest of the dinner,I let this sit for about 10 minute. My SO and thought it tasted good as it was,but felt like it needed a bit more of a kick.So, maybe some crushed red pepper flakes the next.Thanks for posting and, " Keep Smiling :) "

Sue I made your wonderful casserole today, my plans are to serve it for dinner tonight, the only bad part is that I can't keep myself from eating it, I hope there will be enough left for dinner, I made it as you stated with no changes, this is a really winning casserole, thank you very much!

Fantastic simple recipe with loads of flavour! I searched for kid pleaser and Italian and found this recipe. I substituted left over chicken for beef, added olives and used cheddar instead of mozzarella and this turned out wonderful! Thanks Sue for the great recipe.
