once a week, i have to prepare several meals for my DH to take on the road with him. i changed quite a bit in this recipe and it turned out well. mostly, i used it as a guide to use up leftovers. for the cheese, i used about 8 slices of white american processed, half a cup of mexican mix shredded, and half a cup of sharp cheddar, plus the parmesan. for the veggies, i used half a bag of frozen peas, and half a bag of frozen corn. topped it off with remainder of bag of french fried onions. viola!... a perfect mesh of flavors to satisfy the DH.

I was unimpressed with this dish. The flavors didn't blend as well as I had hoped. It just tasted like something was missing.

Followed the instructions to a tee, but I just was not crazy about the texture of the whole dish. Great potential though. I would like to make a cream cheese sauce for it if I try it again.

Made this as part of my first OAMC session..turned out GREAT! Put together and baked, then froze the entire thing. MIL said it was better than a restaurant...and I can't tell you how much of a compliment that is coming from her ;) Wouldn't change a thing!!

Very nice! I've made this twice. The first time I used Angie's idea of sauteing onions and garlic to add to the canned tomatoes. This time, being the height of the tomato harvest in my garden, I used fresh tomatoes, scallions and a leek from my garden, along with garlic festival garlic, and ended up making a tomato sauce similar to the one I used in my Tomato-Pistachio Asparagus (Tomato & Pistachio Asparagus). Both ways worked great. All the kids ate it. I agree with CraftScout that it might be a little better if we made a cheese sauce instead of just mixing in the cheese, but even with the cheese just mixed in, it turned out quite nice and we all enjoyed it.

The kids really loved this and it tasted good, but I think it could be made better with a cheese sauce, rather than just cheese mixed in. However, for people with a shorter amount of time, this is a great recipe.

This recipe was great! I topped it with french fried onions and omitted the parmesan. I also used whole wheat macaroni as it was all I had on hand. It turned out really well.

Very good! My kids gobbled it up! I froze several casseroles of this. The pasta was slightly mushy when thawed and cooked, but that may be my fault as I can't remember if I rinsed the pasta with cold water before preparing. Thanks!

Excellent dish. My wife loved it, my daughter not so much, but she's 2 and a half, so what does she know... I added some ham to the mix and mozerella and used whole wheat penne. Thanks for sharing!

Very good! I especially like the simplicity. I had to use up some mozzerella, so I added a bit of that too. We had to add some salt. Might try some herbs next time, too. After the 10 min, I broiled it for 5 min to brown the cheese a little. I served it with baked chicken and a salad. Thanks!
