This recipe came together very quickly, so it would be great for nights you need to get dinner on the table in a hurry. I omitted the Italian sausage because my family doesn't like it. Other than that, I followed the recipe as far as ingredients. I did cut all the ingredients in half making only one 9x13" dish, but it was still way too much for my family to eat at one meal. I didn't add the cheese in with all the other ingredients. I topped the casserole with it the last five minutes of baking. I did feel like the casserole was missing something as it was in my opinion just a wee bit bland. Maybe this was due to my omitting the sausage. If I make this again, I'll probably play around with some more spices to add in just to jazz it up a bit.

My highest praise for this recipe! I needed something quick for a potluck supper and found this recipe to be quick, easy and delicious. Others brought Italian-type casseroles to the potluck supper but this one was emptied quicker than all the others (my biased opinion: The others weren't nearly as good). People went back for seconds and thirds! 50+ people can't be wrong! My husband even requested this the following week because he didn't "get enough" of it the previous week--he doesn't do that very often! Yum! It was even better the 2nd time around! I used 2 jars of spaghetti sauce because I didn't have the tomato paste/sauce on hand the night I first made this. Also, I cut up the sausage (pre-cooked Italian) into chunks, seasoned everything and cooked it all with the ground beef. I also used a bit of mozzarella cheese on top for a special effect. Very easy, it does make a ton for extra an extra meal or extras. Great great GREAT recipe! Thanks!
