    I tried this recipe this week. I do agree that it makes a TON of food (which is great for leftovers), but I think I will not use two lbs of meat next time, and maybe mix in some italian sausage for more flavor. Also, the cooking time was a bit long. - 6/10/09

    We all loved this recipe. However, it only took 3 1/2 hours on low in my crockpot. I also used soy crumbles instead of hamburger and no one even noticed. I will definitely make this again. - 4/26/10

    I'm not sure if I did something wrong. But, it burned on the bottom and was really mushy, I cooked it for the time it said.. - 5/19/10

    Not real tasty. We may have possibly over-cooked it. We don't plan on making it again. Our crock pot doesn't have a setting for cooking on low for 5 hours. We ended up cooking it on high for 5 hours. We are still new to crock pot cooking. - 8/4/08

    Reply from AZIAS_MOMMY (8/8/08)
    yeah you must have overcooked it....low and high are completely different...
    If you only have high I would suggest checking it after 2 1/2 to 3 hrs.

    I made this for my boyfriend and I and it was sooo wonderful!! It was super easy to make and we had so much left over we had to freeze some for later! I will make this again for sure, it is so easy. You just set it up and leave it! - 3/10/08

  • This is top notch! I used about 1 1/2 lbs ground beef & dry italian herbs. Like many other posters, mine only took 3-4 hours. My hubby, who does not watch his calories, said it was quite delicious and requested it be put in regular rotation! - 4/2/13

  • This was wonderful! Rather than go for a 2nd lb of meat, I added in 3-4 handsful of chopped fresh kale to the browning meat . . . it added volume to the meat layers, plus all the green fiber and nutrients. Spinach would work, too. I also used fresh chopped mushrooms rather than canned. YUM. - 6/25/10

  • I used 1lb turkey and 1lb ground beef (what I had on hand) and this turned out to be AMAZING! My kids don't care for ricotta so I might try cottage cheese next time, but I thought this was fantastic! - 2/9/10

  • Does this require one of the larger crockpots? - 10/28/09

    Reply from AZIAS_MOMMY (2/26/10)
    I have a regular crockpot on the larger side and it probably ends up 2/3 full so a bit smaller one would just be thicker :)
