    Pretty good! My cheese-picky child approved, though I had to make sure the cheese in the meat was well mixed/hidden and I also left half of the top without cheese. He ate it and loved it. The original recipe looked a little bland to me... I took anothers advice and added a couple shakes of red pepper flakes. I also cook all my ground beef with a 1/4 - 1/2 lb (per 1 lb of ground beef) of jimmy deans sausage (in the roll) and I think that added some flavor. I only had diced toms., but i just threw them in my blender for a few seconds and crush them up more. Still turned out great and we would make again!

    Not bad :) I swapped out the macaroni for three cheese tortillini. Yum!

    very good. the recipe calls for paprika but doesnt tell you when to add it so i added a bit into the sauce. used italian breadcrumbs which had more seasoning and flavour than panko. also would use a 3 cheese tortellini instead of macaroni next time.

    We loved it. I added some pepper flakes. A little heat made it for us.
