About this recipe: This is a simple, hearty and delicious pasta dish. A venison ragu is layered with penne pasta and mozzarella, then baked to perfection. Serve as is or with a side salad.
I've made this recipe at least 6 times since I found it on-line. I used Venison the first time but now use ground combo Beef/Pork . Wonderful. - 17 Jan 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I've never liked the taste of vinsion and usually refuse to eat it, but this recipe was to die for! I made a few minor changes: instead of using tomato suace, i used a jar of Ragu traditional spaghetti sauce. I didn't have basil on hand, so i used 1/4 tsp. of oregano instead. I also used 1/4 lb of ground beef mixed in with the venison meat to cut the gamey taste. It was awesome! It went so fast too. Serve with garlic bread and it's a meal fit for a king! - 12 Oct 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
It was OK. Next time, if I make it again, I'll just mix up the noodles and meat mixture and top it with the cheeses. I don't understand the layering and it just didn't work for me. The flavor is OK. Tastes kind of Italian, which I'm not crazy about. - 11 Jul 2011 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
