This is a healthy recipe, which I liked, but it did lack flavor. The second time I made this, I added Italian seasoning and red pepper flakes. Still needs something... maybe basil? I like the recipe overall, so I will definitely make it again with a chopped onion, fresh basil, along with the Italian seasoning and red pepper flakes .

Anything that takes 30 minutes of work and then another hour to bake is not a 30-minute meal in my book, and not suitable for a weeknight. I'm sure it's delicious but definitely mis-categorized.
I've made this a few times using ground turkey instead of beef; I saute a chopped onion (instead of scallions) first then add the turkey; then follow the rest of the recipe. Add some Italian seasoning or Parmesan if your tomato sauce is bland. Good, easy recipe.
It was pretty easy to make, not too much prep time, and it turned out amazing just as the recipe is written. I wouldn't change a thing. I have never written a review before, but had to on this one. This is a definite re-peat recipe.
I didn't find this bland at all. I made this as written except I use marinara sauce from a jar instead of tomato sauce because I was stupid and forgot to buy tomato sauce. Perhaps that is why it tasted awesome? Anyone who keeps adding things and still finding this bland should try the marinara sauce and go back to normal for the rest of the ingredients.
