    I used Morningstar Farms veggie crumbles for the "meat" and fat free shredded mozzarella, and mushrooms and zucchini per others suggestions. Also used high fiber pasta with calcium. Very good! - 2/17/10

    Lovely. I had to add a little more water while the mix was in the pot, to stop it from sticking to the bottom, but otherwise quite tasty. I'd say that for us, a serve as about 1.5 of the recipe servings. Next time I'll add the mushrooms and sliced olives as per other members' suggestions. - 2/22/09

    I just made this and it smells delicious. The only thing I would change is the servings...if this is all that is for dinner, there is no way it serves 12!!!! 6 servings is a lot more reasonable with a salad. I think I will add some canned mushrooms and some sliced black olives next time. Pizza! - 7/13/08

    This was such an easy base recipe! I left out the peppers as we had none left, added in an extra half cup of onion, and added a half cup of peas. Delish! I did have to add more water, though, to keep the meat and noodles from burning while I waited for the noodles to finish. But overall great! - 2/18/10

    We've been making this for years. Our kids loved it. Some substitutions we like: ground turkey, can of diced tomatoes in place of spag sauce, addtl veggies: mushrooms, spinach. I always use w/w pasta. Great for leftovers. Also good to freeze portions. - 2/18/10

    I made this for dinner and everyone loved it! I left out the onions and it was still great. I have very little cooking experience and it was easy even for me to make. I threw together one of those salad kits that comes with all the ingredients in the bag (Fresh Express Caesar Lite) and it was great. - 7/18/07

  • I would rather eliminate the cheese and use more meat. only 1 lb meat and 8 oz of pasta doesnt seem like enough food for 12 servings. Why stretch the servings to 12 when at 6 servings it is still a reasonable 355.4 calories per serving ? - 2/18/10
