Thank you for reviewing this recipe.


add this for more seasoning

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

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

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.

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.

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