Made this for dinner last night and what a tasty dish. I did saute up some onions and garlic and added it to a jar of marinara sauce but otherwise followed the instructions. Definately will make this again. Served with a green salad with a French-Italian Salad Dressing Mix#94469 which made for a wonderful dinner. Thank you for posting. Made for Spring PAC 2013.
I used a jar of marinara sauce. This casserole is so yummy. Even my son liked it. Thanks Johnsdeere :) Made for PAC Fall 2012
