    It turned out great! However, the video on how to place the cresent roll dough stinks. I recommend watching Taylor Elmore's video if your confused.

    Pretty good! Hard to get the inside of the dough cooked though. I added onion, spinach, and garlic and it was good!

    solid recipe. we made it by the recipe, but there's definitely some room for additions in the mix: spinach, chopped onions, ricotta. Gonna try adding mire to the mix next time.

    Tasted amazing. Ended up putting it in for 30 minutes, might have come out a little crispier than directions called for never the less it still was a great hit! Everyone wanted second.

    this was so easy to make, i was running behind that night and made it in a rush. Really wasn't sure how it was going to turn out, to my surprise there was none left! 3 of us ate it for dinner and all had 2nds it was that good!

    Really good. My husband wants to expand the core recipe and mix it up a bit but we all loved it. In my house it produced four teenage boy/adult servings.

    The bottom dough crust was still raw after 30 mins in the oven

    Turned out great after some slight modifications. I sautéed some onion, garlic, and spinach first before cooking meat and then added it back in at the same time I added the sauce.. I also used ground turkey instead of ground beef as a healthier alternative.

    Turned out great!! I would definitely make it again. I made some tiny alterations. I added a spoon full of tomato paste (it was taking up space in the fridge), used ground turkey, added Worcestershire sauce and steak grill mates seasoning (to add some beef flavor) and lastly I used the chunky pasta sauce.

    Extremely easy to make with minimal ingredients. I used a gourmet pasta sauce which definitely helped add extra flavor. Very yummy low prep meal!

    Loved the recipe and easy to make! I added onion, garlic, salt, pepper, and parsley to my ground beef to give it more flavor. One issue I had with this dish was that the bottom of the crescent rolls were not done. I’m going to try and leave it in the oven for a few extra minutes and see if that works. Other than that, it was a hit in my household.

    It was an easy recipe to follow. Chose to make this at the last minute and it’s a great recipe to throw together.
