"Great weeknight meal and makes enough to have as leftovers later in the week. :)"
"Exceptionally tasty casserole and a big plus being it can be frozen. I omit the fennel because we do not like it and doubt if it deters from the final result. Can see this being put in the freezer often for drop in company. Thanks because it will be very useful seeing we have out of town company coming and they are pasta lovers."
"This was great.I made regular recipe. I also made vegetarian version for my daughter, who typically doesnt care for marinara and she ate it up."
"Oh yeah! Even your pickiest eaters will gobble this up! Thanks, Chili Spice!"
"OH MY GOSH! Not only was this dish beautiful, it was sooo delicious! As soon as I was putting it all together I knew this dish was going to be great and it was!"
"I made this tonight and put it into 2 2-quart casserole dishes heaping full. It will be feeding my family several times....seems like it made a whole lot of food! That's okay, because I'm leaving my husband and son for a few days and that is why I made this...feed them while I'm gone. It was very good. The freezer is full of frozen dinners that I have made them...maybe they won't eat them all and I won't have to cook when I get home...ha! Thanks for posting a great meal! Rachel Castle"
"This is a pasta bake recipe that my husband really, really liked. I used one roll of hot sausage, green instead of red pepper and about two cups of mozz. cheese. Used about 1.5 jars of Ragu plus a small can of tomato sauce. And fresh spinach from the Farmer's Market. There were two adults and four teenage boys and there's not a bit left!"
"We are so excited about this delicious dish! It's easy and fun to make. I used sweet Italian turkey sausage, and just 2 cups of mozarella. Will make again, and soon!"
"my family loved this I used 1 8 oz 4cheese pizza and 1 8 oz moozarella.Was very tasty."
"This was SO yummy. I used my Recipe #413262 for the sauce and did everything else according to the directions. I would definitely make this easy and delicious recipe again."
"Excellent! Easy, quick ingredients and I only used 2C of the mozerella cheese and 1C parmesean cheese and it turned out delicious! I also used a frozen box of spinach (instead of fresh) and added it to the pasta after it was drained. Feeds tons!"
"I made this the night before so all we had to do was heat it up in the oven. I did add a little less cheese than listed- 4C sounded like a lot! It came out delicious just the same... Thanks for a great recipe! :)"
"This is very tasty! I misread the instructions and cooked an entire bag (16 oz.) of pasta so I had a lot! What I ended up doing was making a 13x9 pan for dinner and 8x8 pan for the freezer which was actually rather nice. There is plenty of the larger pan leftover for lunches this week."
"Fantastic recipe! I tweaked it slightly and used smoked sausage but still made an amazing dish, left overs reheated well the day after aswell!"
"Loved this recipe, I did add a 14 oz can of Italian diced tomatoes to it also. I am definetly going to keep this recipe on hand whenever I want something warm and comforting to eat. Thank you for sharing your recipe."
"This is an awesomely tasty dish just right for a snowy evening! Didn't have fresh spinach so used frozen--it made enough for dinner and another casserole to freeze."
"This is just fantastic cheesy goodness. I didn't have the spinach but this was very good anyway."
"If a way to a man's heart is his stomach, this will seal the deal!! I made this for my boyfriend last night and he was SOOOOO amazed! If I ever cook for his parents, this will be it for sure! The only differences I made were adding some fresh mushrooms, turkey italian sausage, and garlic from a jar. But it was soooo great and it looked like something out of a restaurant. And it's simple enough I'll never have to look up the recipe again!"
