A tasty dish, but I found the dried herbs overpowered the flavor of the meat. I might try it with fresh herbs next time. Thank you.
Okay, I changed a couple things, but we all really liked this! I used campanelle, and in place of the ground beef, I used ground chicken, and in addition to cooking it with the garlic, I also added a little chopped onion and a little olive oil. I used a can of crushed tomato in place of the diced (for the kid's pickiness reason) and about a tablespoon of tomato paste.Poured the whole works in a baking dish, topped with Parmesan and shredded mozzarella, and baked it for about 20 minutes. My husband then asked "What do we call this when we want you to make it again?" (that's his way of saying he loved it) Thanks!
