This was very good and easy to make. I think I will leave out the sausage next time. The sausage gave it a little bit of an unusual flavor.

Yummy! I've made this twice - I only used 1 jar of alfredo sauce and I made the recipe the night before and then baked it at 350 degrees for 40 minutes (covered).
