    This recipe makes for a good starting point, but it's fairly bland as is. Could really use either additional Italian spices, or some Mexican flavors. On the up side, it's a nice hearty veggie dish, and it isn't difficult to prepare. I was worried it was going to look unappetizing as I was pouring it into the casserole dish, but after baking and cooling it firmed up nicely, and the cheese I sprinkled on top gave it a much more attractive look.

    This recipe was alright, but I didn't find it great. I won't be making it again sorry.

    This recipe is good. I used it as a starting point substituting with things I already had in the house. My variation included whole wheat elbow macaroni pasta, no green peppers, 1 can of tomato paste with water (for the tomato sauce), mixed beans (instead of black only), cottage cheese (instead of the ricotta) and a nutritional yeast blend for the monterey jack cheese. I also added some red pepper flakes and sriracha for heat. Very tasty and flexible recipe. Thanks for the idea!

    This is good stuff! Nutritious and delicious. I don't care for onions so left them out; I compensated in volume by adding a little more of the other veggies and in flavor by using tomatoes with chilis (Rotel) for the canned tomatoes. I couldn't resist adding just a little monterey jack cheese to the top of the casserole. Absolutely loved this - thanks for posting this winner!
