    add this for more seasoning

    Kim Rivers from Northridge, CA

    I used pizza sauce instead of the tomato sauce and it added some zing. Great taste!

    Excellent!

    Jessie from College Station, Texas

    This was a really nice change of pace from the ordinary Italian casserole. Very flavorful. We added a can of sliced mushrooms just because we're mushroom fans; it would've been great without them too. Will make again.

    Different Casserole

    Misha from Seattle

    I thought the sauce was a nice change from an ordinary Italian tomato sauce. Like the other reviewers, more seasoning was needed; I added garlic powder and salt and pepper. Well, I actually didn't use bacon and replaced it with turkey meatballs. I also added some diced eggplant. The veggies that you can use are pretty limitless. Thanks for the recipe.

    YUMMY!!

    Lisa Werner from Columbus, Ohio

    Absolutely terrific!! I added mushrooms, and a large clove of garlic that I diced fine. I also added oregano and thyme, and eliminated the chili powder. Used canned diced tomatoes. I doubled my recipe and served it at a cook out. Got rave reviews, so i will definately add this to my favorites.

    OK

    Cyndi Galbraith from Waxhaw, NC

    This was alright but not anything I think I would make again. I didn't care for the chile powder flavor. Cyndi

    Easy and tasty

    Ron Madewell from Toronto, Ontario

    I found this a quick and easy meal to make that satisifed the crew. I do have a suggestion that it was a little bland and needed a tablespoon of chili powder vs. the teaspoon. Definitely a "keeper".

    Yummy

    Hillary from Idaho Falls, ID

    My husband and I loved this recipe. It is one of our favorite dishes and it really isn't to hard to make. I do add a little bit more chile powder because I really like the flavor that it adds to the tomato sauce. I think that mushrooms would also be good in this dish.

    Sooo Good!

    Mary from Ft. Lauderdale

    This was very tasty and flavorful! If you like spicy, try to use a hotter crushed chile. Very easy to prepare, and you don't need "unusual" ingrediants to make it. Try it! =)

    Very Tasty

    Susan Gartner from

    The chili powder in this meal gives just enough extra flavour, without overwhelming the taste of the bacon. Everyone loved it(even the 2 year old)
