This is a really good recipe for chili. I liked the combination of ground beef, sausage and the different types of beans. I substituted another can of diced for the whole tomatoes but next time I make this I will just use 2 cans of diced tomatoes. It was not too spicy so my kids loved it and I was able to add some hot sauce to my bowl. Served it w"

I served this to company last night and everyone loved it. As other reviewers suggested, I added dried rosemary to the 'marinate' before cooking. I also added 2 medium sweet potatoes (cut into large cubes) and baby carrots. These additions made the dish more colorful and flavorful. The baby carrots should be added during the last 30 minutes as the"

I didn't have any peppers so I substituted ground red pepper. Everyone loved them!
I would also suggest using a little cornstarch to thicken the sauce."

I made this for our neighborhood block party yesterday and had to bring half of it home. The dressing was oily and very green in color which might have been the reason that so many of my neighbors did not want to try it. I agree with the previous reviewer, possibly doubling the antipasto ingredients might have made the pasta more appealing."

When I saw how many people had reviewed this recipe I decided that I had to make it also. Yes, it tasted good, but in my opinion this recipe was definitely not worth the 2 hours needed to prepare it. My husband and teenage sons could not understand why they had to wait so long for a spaghetti dinner. :-( "

I like adding very thin slices of red onion also. If you want to add balsamic vinegar use the white (clear) variety so the mozzarella does not turn brown.
Delicious!"

My family and I love this recipe! As other reviewers suggested I use cream of celery soup, 1/2 cup mayo and 1/2 cup finely diced onions. Just add cubed or shredded chicken to make it a meal! You won't be disappointed. ""

My family and I did not care for this recipe. I felt that there were too many conflicting flavors and that ruined the dish.
Paula has a similar recipe called Broccoli Casserole which is absolutely delicious. I would suggest you use that recipe and add chicken to it. There won't be any leftovers! ""

My whole family loved this!
I did not add the egg yolk and I used 1/2 lamb and 1/2 beef. This was a great recipe that can be made all year long; not just for St. Pat's Day."
