"Good stuff but I added some ingrediants which I am sure improved this recipe a great deal: used 1lb of ground beef, 8oz noodles, 15oz can of tomato sauce, 1Tbls of worchestershire sauce, 1Tbls brwn su..." See moregar, 2tsp of chili powder and apprx 8ox shredded cheddar cheese mixed in to melt. I think perhaps next time, I'll add some mushrooms or green peppers. The extra noodles gave this more substance, the increased tomato sauce made this not so dry and the additional spices gave this a mild kick. Other than those additions/changes, I did follow the recipe (kept the corn, garlic powder etc...) This is a recipe that is very easy to adjust to your tastes."
"I really want to give this recipe 4 stars because of it's simplicity and the fact that it is a good 'base,' but it's very bland for my own tastes. Especially if you're using tomato sauce from the can,..." See more spices need to be added or else it has that 'metalic' taste to it. I browned my beef with the recommended amount of onion and added some diced green pepper and minced garlic. I also left out the corn. Then I added more garlic powder, sea salt, pepper, an Italian seasoning bland (about a teaspoon), paprika, and a few pinches of sugar. Then I added the cooked pasta (used shells, and way more than the half cup), and added fresh diced tomatoes. I let that simmer for about five minutes then transferred the mixture to a baking dish and topped with large tomato slices and mozzarella cheese. I baked it at 350 for about 25 minutes. Turned out great this way."
