    Its a every day dish, nothing fancy but quite tasty. I might add some red bell peppers to give it a bit more taste. All make it again, its quick, good and simple! - 10/2/09

    This was pretty tasty! The ricotta does kinda give it a grainy texture in the beef but it's definately yummy. I might mix the ketchup into the ricotta mix the next time to give it a more sweetness and flavor. Definately would make again. Hubby even liked it! - 5/8/08

  • was a good dish but seemed a little on the dry side when it was finished... taste was excellent just kept finding myself feeling like i was ending up with spaghetti with barey any sauce or anythng else other than tomatoes in it.. may make again but may try to tweak it for my family... - 3/10/14

  • I think this recipe was ok. The ketchup sort of ruined it for me. I would like to find something to use in its place. - 12/12/13
