    Used 2lbs of ground beef and all other ingredients remained the same. Family really enjoyed this!

    Family liked, they said it was delicious . It was fast and easy to make. I used basil,garlic and oregano diced tomatoes because that was what I had in hand, but definitely adds more flavor to it. I will also suggest to add a few more spices to the ground beef if you would like to add a little more flavor. For the simplicity of the recipe it turns out pretty good.

    So quick and easy to make I only modified by adding a few more spices delicious!!
    it was easy to make however it seems like it lacks something it's kind of bland probably wouldn't make it again.

    Very simple to make. The kids loved it!!!
    Needs crushed tomatoes instead of diced, or add a third 12 oz can of diced tomatoes. Definitely missing some flavor. I added fresh and ground garlic to give it more of a kick.

    Tasty meal, but could use a little more seasoning, perhaps oregano or basil. Added carrots and peppers to the bacon and onion mix, and liked the result.

    I liked it a lot. My family thought it was missing something - maybe tomato paste?

    Good starting combination. I’d add more garlic to season.

    Pretty average and nothing really special but a good choice when you need to throw a quick dinner together! I added bell peppers and garlic and extra seasonings & that helped.

    Mine turned out a bit too wet. Perhaps a little less liquid from the Tomatoes?

    Very good, I used mozzarella cheese since I didn’t have provolone .

    Husband loved it. I don’t care for bacon but I really enjoyed it too. Will definitely make this again. It took longer than the prep time said but it was worth it. Easy week night recipe

    Ingredients list says 1 can tomatoes; full recipe says 2 cans. Which is it? Poorly written, poorly edited recipe.

    Very easy to make and tasted good. I added a bag of steamed peas because this recipe didn't call for any green vegetables. I'd also add some seasoning to the ground beef if I made it again.
