This was excellent. I used a food processor to do all the chopping and it went together quite easily. The family loved it. The only complaint was the desire for more marinara in the sauce. I served it along side of some lightly buttered spaghetti noodles (garlic salt and parsley flakes mixed in) and a tossed green salad. Time-wise, I'd probably save this for a weekend meal. I would definitely serve it to guests.

Loved it! I made this last night and even my picky husband liked it. I added some drumsticks to mine and also cooked it in my dutch oven instead of the baking dish, It turned out great!. Very flavorful, and easy.

Followed the recipe exactly, but did add more sauce. Everyone ate it up and asked if I would make it again sometime soon...definitely a keeper!

I thought this recipe was excellent. Wouldn't change a thing! All the chopping was worth the effort.

I cannot say that I completely followed the recipe. I was trying to clean out the fridge. I used an orange bell pepper in place of the green bell. I probably had 10 ounce of mushrooms instead of 8. I also combined 1 cup of marinara with 1 cup of Sockarooni pasta sauce. I served it over angel hair pasta drizzled with a bit of olive oil. I thought it was really good and would make it again (with my modifications though). This is not a fast meal. While I was fine doing it on a weeknight, it's best saved for a night when you have the time.

I'm not sure what went wrong with this dish, but my family and I definitely didn't like it. The flavors just didn't seem to meld well. I couldn't find the McCutcheon's marinara at my grocery store and instead used a different brand of sauce... maybe that was it. I followed the directions exactly (besides the McCutcheon's) and served over whole wheat penne. I will not make this dish again.
