This recipe was super easy to make! Great for days when you don’t have a lot of time to cook and can pull out the crockpot. It was a little on the bland side, so I added some crushed red pepper flake when I put the shells in. Very filling soup, would definitely make again in a pinch

Almost too much flavor. Noodles got too soft, add them in with less time

Blast of delicious taste! I doubled the recipe to cover a second meal. Looks like the double batch will generously feed at least 10. I would double the amount of pasta next time. I didn’t have enough tomato paste so I used a large can of tomato sauce. And I didn’t end up adding the water (probably because of the tomato sauce. It was a thick soup, but I didn’t want it runnier since it was “Lasagna”. If I doubled the pasta, I would probably need the water in the recipe.

The sauce for this was sooo good that I am going to make the recipe again, except use it as spaghetti sauce. I am going to freeze it in small batches for quick meals.

I made a few adjustments and it turned out yummy. Added slightly more garlic and onion and added 1Tbs oregano to give it more of a lasagna taste.

This was a delicious and satisfying meal for a cold winter’s night. I will definitely serve this again. The only change I made was to use half sweet Italian sausage and half ground beef. It worked fine this way but I think it would be fine with all beef, as well. Thank you for sharing this recipe.

Everything was excellent except it wasn't soupy lol. Next time I'll add more water other than that no complaint

This was really easy to make. Made as directed, and my husband and I liked it well enough. Unfortunately, the kids didn't really like it that much. They thought it was okay, but would rather have any of the other Italian style dishes we make.

Amazing! Huge hit with boyfriend and his mother! I’m Italian and this stood up to my grandmothers standards!

It was so good! I suggest adding bell peppers or corn to add a twist! It did remind me of lasagna, but it did have a strong tomato flavor. My family and I loved this dish and is perfect for a crisp autumn evening! Anybody who loves tomatoes will enjoy this dish!

Pretty good. A little too salty and could use some balance of a bit of wine and crushed red pepper which makes it perfect

Great! I made it with 1/2 beef and 1/2 Italian sausage and did not add the extra water with the pasta. It was perfect!

Could use a bit more savory seasonings but overall good. Friend suggested using Italian sausage, which I will definitely do next time.
