    Sandi (From CA)'s Note:

    If you like lasagna, you'll love this dish, and the addition of the red wine takes this over the top! (We're not wine drinkers, but it makes this dish "totally money", as my nephew would say.) Nary a single human being has crossed paths with it and NOT loved it. I like to cook the bacon and mushrooms separately first - and longer than stated below so that they brown and crisp up better, but the flavor will be the same if you follow the instructions as is. We just gotta have our carcinogens! ;)

      It was good, but I think it should be noted in the title that this is a casserole, not a classic Pasta Bolognese. The Bolognese "sauce" ends up just a delicious flavored meat, it wasn't a sauce at all when I made it because after the 30 minutes were up all of the liquid had evaporated. The red wine and bacon really give the meat a delicious flavor though. I used penne; only thing I did differently was add light mozzarella and it wasn't very flavorful, I think I'll do regular next time!

      Sooo good! Even without a celery, and with linguine pasta instead of penne, it was exellent! Thank you for posting this recipe.

      Absolutely beautiful. I cooked it exactly as the recipe read and it was really yummy and a good way of getting vegies into the kids. Makes a few dishes but small price to pay for a good wholesome dish.
