"This is a tasty recipe. I used gluten free noodles due to an allergy, but stayed true to the rest of the recipe."

"I thought this was very good. A few changes I made: I used fresh pepper instead of frozen. I also added a can of mushrooms. I also didn't use the frozen noodles- I bought a bag (1#) of Amish style egg noodles and used about 3 handfuls, which was the perfect amount. I didn't have any sage, so I left that out. Next time I would use half the amount of the thyme as it was a little strong. I also used reduced fat cottage cheese instead of the ricotta. I will definitely make this again, it was easy and very tasty!"

"This tasted almost exactly like hamburger helper, with pork. Maybe because I used pork sausage instead of ground pork, but it was just ok."
