This was a great recipe and was popular with the group served. I used extra pasta (1 2/3 pounds) but the same amount of meat. I substituted the ham with ground beef and put the onions with the beef instead of the sausage. Also used 2 fifteen ounce cans of pizza sauce, one 29 oz can of tomato sauce and a jar of tomato basil pasta sauce. I mixed all of the sauces together and added onion powder, garlic powder, oregano and Italian seasoning and heated to bring out the flavors of the herbs. By using more pasta and sauce, I was able to make two 9X13X3 inch pans and both were plenty rich and meaty enough. Also used one large bag of pizza cheese and had enough cheese left over to make garlic cheese bread. Will definitely make again for a crowd. Thanks!
I made some modifications to make this a bit healthier for DH and me. I used Italian turkey sausage links, crumbled up in place of the Jimmy Dean. I skipped the ham completely, added sliced mushrooms, used turkey pepperoni slices, and reduced fat cheeses. It was delish! Makes a ton, so I froze half for later. Thanks for the great recipe.
I made this along time and go and I am sorry that I forgot to rate it. Delicious!
Made this Casserole for a potluck this weekend and I came home with an empty dish...It was amazing and everybody loved it! I made it somewhat healthier by using Turkey Sausage, Turkey Pepperoni, healty request sauce, whole wheat pasta and low fat cheese...still had a great taste!
This is one of the best things for our family. My 12 year old wanted me to bake the 2nd one the next day. It was easy to and I like the making of 2 at one time. Saves me time later. I thought there should have been more pasta while I was preparing this, but it was perfect. Glad I stayed with the directions. Thanks!!
Very good. The hubby and his family loved this as they are definite carnivores. =) I omitted the ham, but it was still very meaty. Next time I think I will throw in some bell peppers and onions.
Excellent! All three of my picky children loved it and so did my spouse. Will definitely be doing this one again.
Wonderful the whole family loved it!!I did not find jimmy dean sausages where i live so i used normal sausages the rest a made as written.Will do again.Thanks for the recipe!!
My family of five nearly demolished the entire thing in one night. Will definitely make again. Forgot to add the parmesan in, but will do so next time - was fantastic either way!
My kids love pizza! My nine year old assisted with this dish and it was a HIT!! We will make it again. Would be great for a pot luck. THANKS!!
