    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    Store bought pasta sauce makes this dish easy but you may use homemade pasta sauce for this recipe, Classico Tomato and Basil flavor pasta sauce works well for this, the success of this recipe will really depend on which pasta sauce you use, you may increase the sauce amount to taste, zita or penne pasta can be used in place of the rigatoni if desired.

      This was a big hit at my house! It was really easy to make. I added extra sauce and cheese and it was yummy! When hubby says "keep this recipe"...I know I have found a winner.

      This was pretty good but I think next time I'd like to add more sauce just because we like our casseroles a little more "saucy". I had everything I needed already chopped and in the freezer for this (onion, bell pepper etc.) so It made throwing it together a snap. A good quick weeknight meal. Thank's Carol!!

      This is very good and very cheesy! The flavor of the ground beef/mushroom mixture is wonderful! I will make this often!
