Great dish! None left! Will definitely be doing this again! I've been looking for something similar to stuffed manicotti and this is pretty much it. Not as expensive.

Very good. I did change it up quite a bit but used the main recipe as a core. I added two fresh tomatoes, two cloves of minced garlic, 1/4 chopped green olives, and spinach to the sauce and seasoned with fresh oregano and garlic salt. Added asiago cheese to the topping

Wow is this ever easy! I got home at 6:15, made this and was eating by 7:15. This is good, however, I can see that the spaghetti sauce that you use needs to be very flavorful. Mine was not. I did add fresh mushrooms and next time I will add alot of spices to the ground beef mixture, as I felt it was a little bland (could be due to the sauce I used). My husband asked if this was like an upside down pizza, and I agree it has that kind of flavor. I will fix this again adding more spice and vegies, maybe olives and bell pepper. But for ease this can't be beat. Thank you for posting Bamabelle.
