    It was okay, didnt not taste as fresh or aromatic as hoped. Is heavy dish.

    It was delicious! My husband and two teenagers loved it and the ingredients meshed well together from the hint of spiciness from the jalapeño to the creaminess of the evaporated milk and the tomatoes to give a good base with the spices and garlic to add to the flavor! We will definitely make this again! A great alternative to the plain spaghetti that we seem to have way too much!

    Not the best tasting for me but it was okay.

    Unfortunately I don't think I can give a good review because I highly modified the recipe, but it definitely provided a solid base to work off of.

    Loved this idea however i can’t give a real review as I changed it. Felt the butter was unnecessary so used 1TBSP dairy free, some coconut milk, added mushrooms and olives & instead of cheddar I used halloumi, I also added a jar of Passata which it needed. It was incredible!

    Really good flavor, but mine was a bit dry. I'll make it again, but will add a little more milk next time.n

    too dry for my taste

    It was OK. My confusion is with the herbs and spices. Made my own Creole Seasoning ( Creole salt), but there already is thyme, salt and pepper in the mix. The recipe is not clear this additional thyme salt and pepper?? And how much of the creole salt?? Found it very oily too. Drained the ground beef, but the fat from the melted cheese was off-putting to me.

    Great Flavor,Kids ate it up. Came out a little runny. i drained the diced tomatoes. But i think the ground beef needs to cooked and drained. Will make again and experiment

    Came out amazing. Didn’t have jalapeños or evaporated milk so I substituted. Bake time for me was approx 30 min with oven temp at 350
