My mother made this when I was little. I love it, and still do! :)

Made mine with 1/2 sausage 1/2 ground beef. Added sliced mushrooms. Turned out good. It was a quick meal that satisfied the palates of my family. Will make again when teens are foraging in my kitchen...they are like locusts!

My family did not like this but it was easy to make and I thought it was okay but would not make again.

Yum! I halved this recipe using an 8x8 square pan. I used the entire package of crescent rolls, and put half of them on the bottom for a bottom crust. I also used my own homemade spaghetti sauce for the marinara. My 3 year old and 1 year old gobbled it up!

I would give this a 5-stars personally, but DH thought it was just okay (needs some seasoning to suit his taste, maybe garlic & Italian herbs) and DS didn't care much for it (no surprise, though--he dislikes tomato sauce & crescent rolls). I enjoyed it--it was good, solid comfort food, and it was very easy and quick to make using mostly ingredients that I usually have on hand. I think DH will like it more with some adjustments. I'm sure a lot of it depends on the sauce you use and how seasoned it is. I used Trader Joe's Organic Marinara sauce, which is a good but rather mild sauce. I will definitely make this again, though! Thanks so much for sharing, Jack's Mommy!

This was very yummy indeed! For a simple meal, it came out looking very pretty with the parmesian coated crust. This went over very well and there were no left overs, around here that says something!!
I too made the mistake of not draining the meat mixture before adding the marinara sauce. It came out a bit greasy, please make sure you drain the meat mixture! No worries, still very good and will become a regular meal for us! Thank you, from my family!

Thank you! This was really good and simple to make. The main thing I'll do next time is to drain the meat/onion mixture before adding the red sauce. Since I did not, it came out greasy. I think that wouldn't happen if I drained off the fat. I added garlic powder and some oregano too. Yum - thank you!

this turned out very good. i used 1 lb of italian sausage that i took out of the casings and mashed up with my potato masher. i left out the onion since i used the spicy sausage. everything else i did as the recipe called for and this did turn out quick and yummy. will make this again, thanks for sharing!

This was a meal that the whole family enjoyed. The next time I may "kick it up a notch" by adding a few spices just for my own personal taste. It was great though just the way the recipe is posted. Thanks for posting.
