This was pretty good. I did use penne in place of ziti, sausage in place of the beef and had to leave out the spinach (thought I had some, but didn't). Definitely makes WAY more servings than called for...I made 1/2 recipe and got 2 casseroles full! The one I cooked tonight had 4 good size servings and put another one in the freezer with probably another 3 servings. Just now noticed that I didn't put the s/p in since it wasn't in the directions, but don't think it was needed. I think my sausage was a little freezer burned, so that detracted, but definitely not the recipe's fault! Made for Bargain Basement tag game.
