    I made this and we enjoyed this dish immensely. I did switch the green bell pepper for a poblano pepper. This was very tasty and we will make this again. Thanks for posting a great, super fast and easy recipe!

    Excellent! I didn’t change any of the ingredients or amounts. The only thing I did do different was stir in a few spoonfuls of the sauce into the pasta before baking it.
    I loved it, my husband loved it, the kids ate it, and there were no leftovers!

    I made this ahead, froze it, and then pulled it out one night when I didn’t have time to make a meal from scratch. This froze nicely, and was delicious when I pulled it from the oven! I followed the recipe, except for using ground turkey in place of beef, and using red, yellow and green bell peppers. I thawed in the fridge all day, then baked it at 425 for about 40 minutes. DH loved it. Thanks!

    This was very easy and delicious too! The husband said give it a 5 star rating… and I agree. I will make this again. I made it as per the directions exactly…. I will probably venture out a little next time and maybe add some crushed or diced tomatoes?? or maybe not! thanks so much for sharing Kim D. xoxo

    This recipe is so easy and very tasty too! I added a can of diced tomatoes the second time I made it and will make it that way on the future. Thanks for posting!

    I didn't have bell pepper or Monterey jack cheese. Other than that I made the recipe as is.

    This recipe was absolutely amazing and easy!! Even my 2 year old absolutely loved it. The only thing i did was add slightly more sauce.

  • ElizabethKnicely

    The meat mixture had a great flavor, I found that the flavor didn’t go down into the noodles at all and they were bland. Next time I will double the meat/sauce mixture and mix half into the noodles. Also, we love cheese, so I used a whole 12 oz bag on Monterey Jack cheese and 1 cup of Cheddar.

    This is the best recipe I have made on Recipezaar so far. I have some difficulty cooking and this recipe turned out beautifully. Even my two year old loved it! I used barilla plus pasta and used red peppers instead. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for an easy, yet very tasty dish! I just wanted to add an update saying that I froze this recipe and then reheated in the oven. Turned out beautifully again!

    I have been making this for a year and my whole family loves it-kids included! The added spices make this dish quite a few cuts above most baked spaghetti recipes. The only change I make regulary is to double the tomato sauce, oregano and garlic. (We like it more saucy than the original recipe comes out.) The addition of kidney beans is fantastic.
