    This is a very good recipe! Our family loved it. I had marinara pasta sauce and ground beef. I added crushed garlic. Tasted great! In-laws coming, I asked what I should make and they suggested it.!! Thanks!!!

    All I did different was to use my homemade met sauce that has Italian sausage and ground Sirloin pulse all the other goodies. But by doing that, it was ready in no time. We really liked it!

    Very Good, just like lasagna, only easier! I even had my own homemade meat sauce thawed, so it came together quick! Loved it!

    I just made this, dishes are actually soaking. I had one jar of store bought spaghetti sauce that I had to use up and I actually only used about a 6 ounces of farfalle noodle because refrigerated pasta dishes dry out quick and I wanted a lot of sauce. Since I am only cooking for two, that was plenty. Boy did I get it spicy. Three garlic cloves, 12 oz of Hot Italian Sausage, 1/3 chopped onion, 8 ounces of ricotta and 4 ounces of mottz. I threw in fresh basil, 1/4 teaspoon of penzey's italian seasoning. And I cooked it on the stove. I have never done that before and was pleasantly surprised how easy the whole process was and it was saucier than any other Lasagna type dish I have ever made. My husband would have been proud of this dish. Thanks for all the ideas.

    I agree that a bit more sauce would have been a good idea. Easy to make and quite tasty.
