A great recipe, yielding great results! I made this last night. Only substitution: I used a fresh garlic clove (sauteed w/ onion) in place of the teaspoon of garlic salt. Also added a dash of freshly grated Parmesan before baking just for fun. It was totally excellent.... Would make for great leftovers IF ONLY there were any of this delicious meal left over! Next time I will have to double this.

This is delicious and so easy to make. This is a great, fast recipe to make when you are craving a hearty pasta dish. I sprinkled red pepper flakes over the top of mine. Thanks for the great recipe!

Simple but great. I followed the recipe other then I used minced onions (I didn't measure them, I just dumped them in), minced garlic from a jar instead of the garlic salt, a pound of ground beef and a 13 ounce box of Dreamfield pasta. I added two cups of the mozzarella cheese to the pasta and sauce and topped with 1/2 cup. I also added 1/2 cup of parmesan cheese. I didn't cover this but cooked it for 20 minutes at 350 and the top browned nicely. This was really yummy but very simple to make. We all enjoyed it.

This is an awesome recipe - SO easy and everyone went back for seconds! (I'm a hero - Kim1 - thanks!) I prepared it the night before and put it in the fridge. It took longer to bake - about 50 minutes - but worked out great for our timing.

Love this recipe. It is fast and easy and seems like you spent forever on it. People of all ages loved it. I used ground turkey sweet italian sausage instead of the ground beef for the enhanced flavor and less calories and fat. I omitted the onions too. I used mushroom spaghetti sauce to add a veggie in it. The final thing I did was to throw in an 8oz container of ricotta cheese to the hot pasta and it melted well. Salad and rolls rounded out the meal.Thanks for the sharing the recipe.I will definitely make this again.

I used italian sausage in this recipe, because that is what was thawed out at the time.. It was great! I made all this to spec, but before I put it in the oven, I added about 5 spoonfuls of ricotta cheese and buried them in the ziti.. I made this with texas toast and my version of olive garden salad (and the O-G dressing from this site) - it was a great meal! Thanks so much!

This was an easy, inexpensive, and delicious dish. This works well for a weekday dinner because it is so quick. But it could also be dressed up with a salad and some garlic bread for a formal Sunday dinner. Excellent post!
