Wonderful!!! My family loved it, even my picky daughter. I even added some italian sausage. I also used a pound of pasta too.

Great dish and popular with the kids too! Tasted fantastic. I did have to increase the pasta to a whole pound since the 8 oz only covers the bottom of the pan, and you were supposed to do 2 layers.

This was soooo yummy! The whole family loved it, even my tomato hating daughter. I will admit, I did not follow the recipe to a "T". I used a whole pound of penne pasta and used 6 ounces of sliced pepperoni. I also spread some sauce on the bottom of the baking dish before layering. I served this dish with cheesy garlic bread and everyone devoured it. My husband even said that he would rather have this than one of my staple dinners, baked ziti! Thanks Inez...you are keeping meals interesting around here!

Excellent! SImply excellent! I used a dash on each layer of dried basil instead of the fresh (couldn't get my hands on it) and it came out just wonderful! Great recipe thank you!

Inez, this is one great dish! My family just devoured it. It is so quick and easy to prepare, and would be great for a "home late-what to make for dinner" night. I did as some suggested, and used the whole pound of pasta, and put a thin layer of sauce on the very bottom. I was concerned that the onions and peppers would not cook through, (family won't eat crunchy ones) so I diced them nice and small. The kids had no complaints! Great comfort food, and I'm thinking good potluck dish, too. Thanks!

This was very good. My friend loved it so much she had seconds and took some home to her hubby and son. I added some ground beef (just cause I had some). I didn't have fresh basil or "shredded" parmesan so I used chopped basil and grated parmesan. I will prepare this again and use ALL the specified ingredients. This will make a good potluck dish.

I made this up and left it for my daughter's dinner. very easy to make, I didn't have any fresh basil, so I used some dried. Daughter complained that it was too spicy, from the pepperoni I think, but did they leave me any? Not a bite!! Couldn't have been that spicy!!

Very easy recipe to prepare and great tasting, but I also recommend increasing the pasta to 16 oz. as the 8 oz called for did not seem to be enough for 2 layers. Thanks for sharing, I will be making this one again!
