    This is my favourite pasta bake which combines beef and cheese. My children request this often! Add more garlic if you like.

    Yummy. Can please bit explain what is it gravy?  -  20 May 2014


    I was a little leary of the brown gravy but it wasn't bad. I do agree it is a little bland . I added chopped onion and green pepper. I also doubled the Mozzerella. I added a cup of mozzerlla in with the pasta and put the rest on top. I will make it again and play around with the seasonings a bit.  -  02 Sep 2001  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Do I EVER love this recipe! We loved it so much, I made it again 5 days later. And, it's SOOO easy to make. The only changes I made to this recipe is that I substituted a jar of Alfredo Sauce for the half-and-half. What a wonderful flavor it gave it. Also, since I bought a 2 cup bag of shredded mozzarella cheese, I used it all because my son loves the cheese! This is a keeper I'll make over and over again! Thank you!!!  -  04 Aug 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
