    Still my favorite recipe how ever, I instinctively added salt and pepper every time I’ve made it accept this time. This time I followed your recipe exactly. It REALLY needs the salt and pepper added when simmering the sauce. I definitely won’t leave it out again. That would be my only suggestion- edit to include 1-1 1/2 tsp salt and done fresh cracked black pepper to taste.

    Easy and super yum! I used ricotta in place of the cream cheese (only because that’s what I had) and it still turned out great.

    Loved by entire family! I used only 12 Oz of pasta, 1/2 onion, substituted cherry tomatoes for canned ones, 1# Italian sausage, and added frozen spinach. Loved that it required cream cheese and not ricotta. Prepared ahead of time and cooked later in the day. Served with salad, rolls and side of fruit.

    It was good. I will adjust the ingredients slightly. Less Italian seasoning, a tsp of red pepper flakes instead of a half tsp and 5 ounces instead of 8 of cream cheese

    Delicious dinner! I doubled the recipe and could not fit it all in my dish. I have all boys and it was half gone. I did layer the cheese and it was simply delicious. The mix of Italian sausage with ground beef was tasty. Will make again!

    This was absolutely delicious, I would say it made more than four servings but that was fine because I couldn’t stop eatting !! After mixing everything together I added mini pepperonis to the top with the cheese topping. I put it in the oven at 400* for about 10 minutes, and it came out perfect. Highly recommend!!!
