Coming from a pasta loving household I had to try this after reading the reviews. It is every bit as good as what they have said about it too!

Very much enjoyed this recipe. It's turned out great and was a large portion for my large family. I will defiantly be making this one again. I think I will try adding some veggies. Red peppers, mushrooms, grape tomatoes. I think you can add anything and it will Still turn out fantastic. Thanks for sharing :)

Freekin AMAZING! I`ve made these kind of pasta and sauce casseroles before but never got the great end results that I got with this one, even with a few changes this is amazing! I used 1 1/2 pounds ground beef (no sausage meat) I thought it would be dry because I`ve had this disappointment with others that I have made so I used 1 1/2 jars of Prego, followed instructions to a tee, I`m throwing out all my other pasta and sauce casserole recipes and replacing it with this one, thank you very much I`m so happy to find this recipe!

I was told that the very best recipes are on this site, well this is one that is the very best! I've made a lot of casseroles with pasta and beef this one takes the cake, I made exactly as written, the only thing is that is took a lot longer to bake, after the specified time it was still not hot in the center I had to cook it for another 30 minutes, this one is going to be stored to in a safe place to make a zillion times again, thank you for a wonderful recipe!
