    To be fair, I usually make recipes twice before I rate them as I seriously dislike reviewers who change, then rate the recipe vs making it as written first. Good as written so I am rating this 4 stars for ease, time and ingredients usually on hand. But for my family's preference I made the following modifications. Used spiral noodles in place of egg noodles as they capture more sauce. 1/2 ground beef and 1/2 hot italian sausage which gave the casserole more complexity. Used small pre-sliced pepperoni to save time. Most importantly, this is a great casserole for making ahead ~ as with many pasta dishes, the flavor gets better the longer it sits. Overall this is a great base recipe to build on. Thank you Melissa for sharing!  -  08 Jan 2011  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I love this recipe! My husband loved it and ALL 6 of my kids loved it too! I think it's the first time everyone in the family actually all really liked a casserole I made! It was fun to make too. I didn't change anything about the recipe other than I used pre-sliced pepperoni and cut them into quarters. I will definately be making this recipe again and adding it to my family favorites. Next time, though, I think I will add a layer of mozzarella cheese in the middle and on the top since our family really loves cheese. Thanks so much for a GREAT new recipe!  -  18 Mar 2005  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Your basic recipe is good, but I use Kraft Mac and Cheese, make according to directions. Saute extra-lean ground beef with onion, green bell pepper, garlic. Add two jars Ragu Pizza Quik, and two pkgs sliced Hormel Pepperoni, then bake as directed 350 for about 45 minutes. Yum. Is the most requested recipe by family, and at work. Delicious and easy for kids of all ages. Alison  -  27 May 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
