I prepared this for my girl friend and used Classico Italian sausage pasta sauce. This was absolutely delicious. At my friend's suggestion I'll use Ricotta cheese next time.

The preparation was a bit time consuming but it was well worth it. I used spicy sausage and my fiance and i ate almost the entire pan in one sitting! Will be making this dish regularly c:
