Sorry, but was really disappointed. I love quick and easy but found this tasted more like the canned pasta products which may appeal to kids. I really missed the true fresh tomato taste of my favorite bottled marinara that I normally used because it was "masked" by the beef gravy flavor....

YUM!!!!! This is a great supper, with a salad and some crusty bread! I used ground turkey and fat free half and half and a combination of parmesan/romano. The gravy was from Sunday's rolled eye of the round beef roast that I had studded with garlic cloves and fresh thyme. I didn't have quite 3/4C left so added some red wine then proceeded as the recipe directed. Wonderful--the combination of the beef gravy and marinara sauce is a delight----thank you for posting this.
