  • I would double the amount of pasta in this recipe. Although the flavor is excellent, I'd fore go the trouble of layering and simply add all the meat sauce stuff together, then put the cheese stuff on top. Add the onions into the meat as it simmers. Instructions leave this out. Excellent recipe! - 7/9/09

  • This was excellent. My pan was too big and everything became one layer, but the taste was wonderful. Next time I'll make sure I have the right size baking dish. - 6/12/09
