    This was simple and tasted great! It is all in the sauce, I bought my sauce from my favorite restaruant. It could have used a bit more sauce but other than that it is a keeper.

    My 15yr. old son and I saw this on the show, and he said "make that mom!" so, I did for dinner last night, it was a huge hit! I made a 9x13 and there wasn't a noodle left!!!

    The value of this recipe to me is the generic nature. Add favorite veggies, change the sauce- the basil tomato sauce sounds wonderful, but other favorite herbs could be used, etc, etc. I found the chef's presentation of the cheese in a light manner sprinkled better than following the heavy amount of cheese in the recipe. Again, the value is in the generic nature of the recipe.

    This meal pleases everyone in my home! Tuesday is the craziest day to schedule our family dinner and this meal is quick and delicious. I add some Italian sausage for the guys, throw a salad together while it's in the broiler and we're still able to eat as a family, a little late for a school night, but still together.

  • lola25 18 Feb, 2008

    how long and at what degree did you bake this? if frozen it can't just be under the broiler for 6-8 minutes. imp information missing here. thanks

  • karikat 29 Jan, 2008

    I loved this recipe!!! I used the Barilla mushroom

  • skeeterjane_com 29 Jan, 2008

    I have frozen this dish before and after cooking it. Both came out fine.

  • kickypants 28 Jan, 2008

    Has anyone frozen this dish for later use? Sounds like it would be a wonderful thing to cut into portions and then thaw and serve with veggies.

  • superjd1 25 Jan, 2008

    I MADE THIS RECIPE,IT WAS GOOD,BUT IT IS TO MUCH CHEESE I WOULD CUT THE MOZZARELLA CHEESE IN HALF.ALSO MAKE EXTRA HOMEMADE SAUCE,I HAVE BEEN TO PATSY'S AND I LOVED GOING THERE.

  • riautismmama 25 Jan, 2008

    I made this recipe last night using Ragu Super Veg Pr. What a treat to find pieces of zucchini and carrots among the pasta. I can think of many different versions to do with veggies. By the way my very picky eater had 2 helpings.

  • JaneAyers 24 Jan, 2008

    This recipe gets 5 stars from me!! It got two thumbs up from the whole family-- even my "picky eater" liked it!! I used Prego Traditional Spaghetti Sauce for the marinara, wonderfully tasty meal, and easy, too!

  • Smtuell 24 Jan, 2008

    Delicious and Easy!! I used whole wheat pasta and it came out AWESOME! Thanks for a great meal idea!!

  • Carolyn_Jane 23 Jan, 2008

    How about adding spinach and mushrooms. Then it would make it a more well balanced, complete meal. Add a nice fresh, green salad and you really have a nice, healthy meal.

  • Busymomof2 23 Jan, 2008

    If memory serves me, the point of that days show was to make simple, fast pasta dishes, hence the reason it uses generic marinara. You can use your own or from a jar. If you wish to doctor it up to make it fancy...then do so. The chef was probably just doing as he felt would fit the point of the days program.

  • corknut 23 Jan, 2008

    Or... sauteed mushrooms would be good!

  • RhondaBowen 22 Jan, 2008

    I would suggest adding diced eggplant to this dish. lightly grill the eggplant in about 2 tablespoons of Extra Virgin Olive Oil, two cloves of garlic and italian seasoning.

    My God ladies, pick a sauce off the net with same ingredients, make sure it can be baked w/o becoming too intense or thick and MAKE IT your OWN recipe. Make your own adjustments according to your taste. I have tried some of his offerings (prepared) buy him or at functions where he was the chef, and hardly anyone cared for the 3 sauces that night.

  • hotcookin 22 Jan, 2008

    I feel the same way; I was hoping that even though he didn't mention the sauce ingredients on the air that I would be able to score it hear. :o(

  • cafelatte 21 Jan, 2008

    gloribeee,

    I was thinking the same thing! That is why I came here to see if he posted his recipe for the sauce. Very disappointed...I need a good marinara or tomato sauce recipe. I have a meat sauce already that I use for my lasagne, but the one he used today looked so good. Oh well.....I guess it's Ragu for me ( just kidding )

  • gloribeee 21 Jan, 2008

    I was quite disappointed in this chef's presentation. This is quite a simple recipe, but it is the basil tomato sauce that he just about mentioned, which would have made it special. Had he gone just one step further and included the sauce recipe, then it would have been a worthwhile presentation ..... too bad ;(
