"Absolutely delicious! I halved the recipe and added 1/4 pound each of sweet and hot sausage. I also used half-and-half because it was in my fridge. The cream really sets this dish apart; the sauce would be wonderful on any type of pasta. Next time I may add baby spinach, also. This is a definite keeper."

"Wow! This dish was amazing, and I make a mean, well any kind of pasta actually, and I'm impressed! Great flavor! The only changes I made were using sausage that we keep cooked and chopped in the freezer to have on hand, some fresh parsley and some grated Parm in the sauce! I highly recommend!"

"My entire family loved this recipe. Usually my kids aren't fans of italian sausage, but the creamy tomato sauce really tones it down into just the perfect flavor for them. We loved this and will definitely make it again!"

"I really wasn't that impressed with this. It tasted ok, but I felt like it needed something more. It didn't help that after reheating the leftovers, there was virtually no sauce left. Somehow the noodles had soaked it up during the reheat process (I'm guessing?). Since we enjoy having leftovers for lunches during the week, this is a big negative for us. I probably won't make this again."

"Made this with mild Italian sausage and a 28 oz can of basil infused crushed tomatoes since my husband can't stand chunks of tomato. This was really good and also got rave reviews from my 4 year old son."

"A Big THANK YOU for submitting this recipe. I have been making this dish for years, since it was first published. My family requests it often. I have made it exactly as shown with great results and also have substituted 1/2 and 1/2 for the cream and added 1 to 2 tablespoons of corn starch to thicken it up a bit. When I didn't have the cream. I also add the juice from the tomatoes for a little more sauce. Served with a salad and garlic bread.....YUM!"

"Loved this recipe, and the last time I made it I used chicken instead of Italian sausage. I also used a jar of sun-dried tomates instead of canned tomatoes. Will make this again and again!"

"We loved this. The only thing we did different, was we did not add the red pepper flakes, because half of us in the house do not like spicier things. This is a recipe we'll be having again (and again!)."
