MY REVIEW

"This was fantastic! I never follow an exact recipe being a gourmet cook so I tweaked it alot. I added fresh tricolor peppers, fresh mushrooms, diced red onions and used half maple pork sausage and half ground sirloin and saut?ed them together with fresh garlic, parsley and rosemary. Used both ricotta and cottage cheese and layered it with 6 cheese Italian and mozzarella. Made a huge amount! Also doubled the sauce. My husband and teenager daughter devoured it and my husband has enough for lunches at work for a few days."
