    Sooooooooo annoying - the weights in either the ingredients list or the instructions are incorrect - they don't match up at all which isn't good if you only realise once you're in the process of making it. I muddled along and thought it was nice but 5 of my 6 guests left some and it wasn't massive portions..........................  -  23 Jan 2016

    I do it twice in one week. that gives me liberty to rate it twice, you think? Even more so, because my two-year old and I ate the rest of the leftovers and my husband pouted!! So, I had to make another batch of this yummy dish. I measured my spices this go-round. and used between 1/2 and 3/4 of a teaspoon of the basil and oregano, the full teaspoon of the Italian seasoning and it couldn't have been better. More fetta, less parm. And used two small fresh tomatoes again and layered them in between the macaroni and the layer of cheese on top. I found the first go round that if I mixed the tomatoes in, the macaroni wasn't as gooey/cheesy; it tended to seperate. so, the layering worked PERFECT. Try it! You Won't Be Disappointed.  -  30 Jul 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    I made this and with a few changes it was awesome. I omitted tomatoes and added 1 tin of tomato paste. I just used basil, salt, pepper and nutmeg for seasonings. I added 1.5 cups mozerella 1.5 of cheddar and 1/2 of parmesian. Kids gobbled it up. Thanks  -  26 Oct 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
