I found this recipe on a blog that I follow. It looked easy so I decided to try it for dinner. My boys loved it. It seemed a little dry, and I like my food more saucy. When I made it again, I doubled sauce for the recipe. It was better, but it still seems like it is missing something and I can’t quite put my finger on it.

Rating:  3 stars  Difficulty of Recipe: 4 stars


How I changed it: I doubled the sauce.



Things I may do differently next time: Not too sure yet



Will I make it again? Most likely because it was a hit with my boys.

  1. I use to get Pasta Carbonara at a restaurant near me. It had mushroom and English peas in it. Loved the mushrooms, but hate peas so I would always push them to the side.

  2. I added sliced black olives and sliced mushrooms. It was already a great casserole and this just tweeked it a little.
