I used half of the ground beef and half of the sausage and about 1.5 cups of mozzarella/mixed Italian cheese and a total of 32 ounces of sauce (Ragu light tomato and basil).


This recipe is so easy and adaptable to everyone's tastes. I only used beef instead of the beef/sausage combination and also omitted the mushrooms. I also used a different pasta sauce, and I think just about any kind would work in this recipe. This is a favorite of my kids' and of mine because it is simple, quick, and the whole family loves it!


Fantastic!! All I changed was to reduce the amount of cheese (not a big cheese fan), but other than that I followed the recipe to the letter and it is wonderful! I'm very much a novice in the kitchen and even so, it turned out great!
