I made this the first time tonight- with modifications! I prefer having a bit of veg in my Italian red sauces, and 2 full pounds of meat seemed a little overwhelming. I cut back a bit on the ground beef, and added in some diced, green bell pepper and 6 medium, diced white mushrooms to the meat while it browned. And instead of using the canned, whole...

This recipe was iffy for us. We really liked the veggies, which stayed nice and crisp, and were cooked perfectly. The pork was tender, but didn't pick up any flavor from the brief 'marinate' the recipe calls for. And the sauce tastes very, VERY strongly of ketchup. We had it over white rice.

I reheated it today by making more rice,...

This was pretty good, although I wasn't able to bake the dish and brown the top as well as I'd have liked, as the bottom and sides were starting to get overdone and the center was still too squishy. My husband really liked this, me not so much. While the flavor of the buttery bready bits was fantastic, I discovered that I do not like blackberries!"

I found this soup to be lack luster when I made it. The soup wasn't flavorful at all, and I was really disappointed. Would not make again!"

This was delicious, my husband and I loved it! We didn't find it bland at all and the only thing we'll be changing in the future is adding way more bacon to crumble on the top! Super yum!"

I was dubious when I tasted the mixed sauce you pour over this dish and found it to be horrifically lemony, but I figured that surely the veggies would balance that out... Alas I was wrong, and I should have gone with my gut and ditched the lemon altogether. The whole thing reeked and tasted of fetid, limp, lemony cabbage- and I normally love cabb"

This recipe is definitely a keeper- my only regret is not fully doubling it so I had even more to eat! I did make some minor adjustments., I used a full cup of celery and carrot each, and a whole onion, along with three cloves of garlic instead of one. I also used Kale instead if spinach, and fire-roasted tomatoes, instead of unseasoned diced. I c"

While decent, it was a tad bland. Definitely needed something more, though it was good enough for a revisit! The mushrooms were fantastic, though I think next time I'll try it with wild rice instead of the orzo. I feel the texture and flavor of wild rice would better compliment the mushrooms then orzo."
