    This recipe was really good. I didn't have some of the ingredients on hand so I improvised a little bit and my family loved it! My three year old who is ultra picky ate it up and asked for seconds! I am going to make another batch and freeze it so I can just take it out and heat it up. Prep and cook time was very managable for a quick meal. Less than an hour and a half total. Try italian pork sausage instead of ground beef for a zestier taste.  -  06 Mar 2003  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Good recipe, will definately use again. I made a few minor changes to the recipe. I made the meat mixture half ground beef and half Italian sausage. I used ricotta cheese instead of cottage cheese and added a box of frozen spinich, squeezed dry. Also a little Italian seasonings.  -  18 May 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I made many changes to this per the other reviewers. My whole family loved this. I made my mother-in-law's sauce. I mixed grnd beef and mild italian sausage. I added extra garlic - yum. I added spag sauce and about 3 tbsp of ricotta cheese to the meat/sausage mixture. I threw a couple of tsp of italian seasonings onto the meat mix as well. With all those changes I would give it 5 stars!  -  28 Mar 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
