    Very excellent recipe. Easy to make and it always comes out yummy. Did I mention its the second time making this? Its certainly not going to be the last either.

    It was really delicious and very easy and simple to make. It was runnier than I thought, but still worth making again. I think adding chopped up mushrooms and perhaps some sautéed onions would improve it. But definitely delicious!

    turned out nice but a little overcooked i suggest reducing the time by a few minutes to prevent overcooking

    It's definitely a quick, easy, and inexpensive meal to throw together if you have many mouths to feed, but it wasn't as saucy as I would have preferred. I could see this being tastier if I had added Italian sausage instead of hamburger.

    Great, very easy recipe. Doubled the recipe for a nice big family dinner, worked out great. Would definitely make it again.

    This was really good. My boys 2 and 4, as well as two girls I was watching 5 and 6 all loved it! I did add some garlic powder and oregano to the sauce to give it a little extra flavor. My husband also cooked some Italian sausage to go with it.
