I tried this receipe, and it turned out wonderful. It was a real crowd pleasure. I modified some of the ingredients to my particular taste. I did not have any left overs!

i had to bring a covered dish to a family reunion and i knew there would already be tons of macaroni, & potato salad and baked beans. i wanted to bring something different and remembered this recipe that i came across after returning from a vacation to barbados. i loved the macaroni pie there and wanted to try making it but haven't have the opportunity to, so i figured this was the perfect time to try it out. i made a double batch and almost all of it went. everyone that was somewhat adventurous enjoyed it very much. a couple of people that don't like peppers or are afraid to try new things weren't so impressed but everyone else loved it. i will definitely make it again. the only think i did different was add red pepper instead of green because that is what i already had.

This makes a good, big pie that sets well and cuts well. I used red pepper instead of green. It was the first time that I have used evap milk in savoury cooking.

This is a great dish that can be done quickly. I sometimes add cubed cooked chicken breasts, carrots, mushrooms, redpeppers to make it a complete meal.

I was looking for an authentic Caribbean vegetarian dish we could have at our next steelband function and thought I would try this recipe. Outstanding and deserves the name. My daughter took the leftovers to a picnic with her classmates the next day. None came back! The verdict was, "Your Mum can cook for us anytime she likes!" :D We will definitely serve this at our carnival function - hoping for 400 people!

They weren't kidding with the name, it is delicious!! The only change I made was to use half monterey jack/half cheddar, though I did use a whole box of 16 pasta and next time I will use less. I intend to tailor it a little more to my tastes next time using a layer of fresh sliced tomatoes under the breadcrumb mixture, and cut back a little on the breadcrumbs. But that was a matter of personal preference!

I think I should have looked at the picture first then I wouldn't have been disappointed that it was too dry. The flavor however was outstanding.

Well, once again I've managed to screw up a recipe. :) I was out of evaporated milk, so I had to use a mixture of half condensed, half regular milk. I didn't know at the time it was SWEETENED condensed milk. In any case, it was a little too sweet for me, but my husband still loved it, so the recipe is solid! I'll make this again and re-rate it, and this time, I'll use the correct ingredients!

Oh wow! Normally don't rate recipes but this one is a keeper! Straight from my childhood as well. My elderly mom who lives with us doesn't like pasta but couldn't stop eating this, she enjoyed it so. Thanks for a wonderful recipe - deserves 6 stars!!!! I think the one comment about adding tomato slices between layers might be good to try as well Nadine
