Reviews for Sausage Macaroni Bake
"Very tasty economical easy main dish. I added a little more oregano to give it a little more spice.As there are just 2 of us I like that it makes a small dish."
"I really liked this dish. Simply and tasty. I added red pepper flakes for some heat. I will definitely be making this again."
"I didn't care for this, but my husband did. Since the recipe makes just a small dish and is pretty easy, I'm happy to make it for him again. I used hot Italian sausage and grated fresh Parmesan cheese, both of which added good flavor to the casserole."
"I've made this one twice now. I have to say i was pleasantly surprised the first time I tried it. I had figured it would have no flavor, but it's very flavorful. Nice, easy, quick recipe!"
"I also 1/4 - 1/2 teaspoon minced garlic, 1/2 basil and a can of diced tomatoes (omitting the 1/2 cup water). (Measurements in this comment are for the recipe above and not the double recipe I cooked.)"
"Good, easy recipe. I doubled it and used a loaf pan. Put a layer of the macaroni mixture in the bottom of the pan. Added a layer of mozzarella cheese. Added a layer of Parmesan cheese. Another layer of the macaroni mixture, mozzarella cheese and Parmesan cheese. Backed ... and yummy!!!"
"It is a keeper!"
"Sounds yummy!! Wish my husband liked sausage better."
