Recipe Comments & Reviews

I made this but I used 3 of the butters, added mushrooms, can of drained sweet corn, red, yellow an green peppers, whole red onion an can of peas. I have (Veggie eaters) and the noodles I used were Radiatore they look like little baby lasagna also I did 1/2 cup of Ragu traditional sauce with a little sugar. I know, my family is picky. I made early, then warmed it up for dinner. They were mad the next day when for dinner because they ate it all for lunch, kids loved it!
Absolutely love it. I'm no cook by any means. Simple and easy to follow! When your wife gives the seal of approval, you know did good. Brownie points for the hubby. Thank you sauté express!
Absolutely great! My family of 5 ate it all, including my 6 year old. Used ground turkey, added a spinach and kale mixture and this was a GREAT dish. Quick easy and healthy!
I made with ground turkey and my family loved it (all picky eaters), very simple and quick!
I made this for dinner and I was pleasantly surprised how easy it was to make, alot less work than traditional lasagna. I'm definitely making this again in the future.
My husband and 4-year old daughter are both VERY picky eaters, but everyone LOVED this dish. The herb saute express squares added just the right seasoning and I was thankful that I was able to get them to eat spinach this way. The only variant I had was that I used a can of "diced tomatoes with basil, garlic, and oregano" and added a pinch of salt to bring out the flavors more.
I made this recipe for my husband and twin toddlers--it was a hit! Will definitely make it again!
I made the recipe this morning for later but had to taste it -- WOW! Delicious. Easy to make and taste was perfectly seasoned. I used mini-bow ties, about 1-3/4 cup as I also added 8 oz. of small button mushrooms, which I left whole. I sauteed them with the meat once it was no longer pink. I will definitely make this again. Thanks LOL!
So simple and really delicious. Even better the next day for lunch.
My entire family loved this recipe! It was so quick and easy to make! I'm definitely adding it to my meal repertoire!
This was easy to make and tasted delicious. I follwed the recipe and used Mafalda. Definitely a keeper!
I used ground turkey instead of ground beef and was very delicious and will make it again

January 6, 2016 by Land O'Lakes Test Kitchen

Chocolate’s complex flavor brings out the sweetness and tanginess of fruit, mellows the heat of peppers, and comes alive when introduced to a little bit of salt. The real question should be, “What can’t you dip in chocolate?” More ...
