Since my children do not like ricotta cheese, this was perfect! It had a wonderful taste and pleased everyone! Thanks for sharing!
Mmmm...this is worth every fat gram! I used 3/4 lb. hamburger, 3/4 lb. Italian sausage and a 12 oz pkg. of mushrooms. Now those mushrooms sauteed in the oil from that sausage sure were good!! Like *Pixie*, I also made the white sauce from scratch and used half of a 26 oz jar of pre-made red sauce already leftover in the refrigerator, plus 1/4 cup water. Instead of cheddar alone, I used two cups of sharp cheddar and two cups of mozzarella.
I followed the concept of this recipe rather than the exact ingredients and that is what I am rating. I was lazy and instead of cooking the meat sauce as described, I added cooked hamburger to a jar of garlic/tomato pasta sauce. I also made homemade white sauce since I've never seen any tinned white sauce locally. Other than my laziness, I think I kept the proportions of ingredients the same as required. Let me tell you, the result was completely delicious and I've been told I can make this one again. Thanks for posting this, Sandi.
The recipe sounds good(though not for a low fat diet!) I really enjoy your directions. That's one of the fun parts of Zarr.....
