Reviews for Sausage Spaghetti Pie
"This has become a favorite at our house! I add onion, green peppers, and mushrooms to the sauce to get more veggies in."
"I have made this many times for friends and family and am always asked for the reicpe. It is also very easy to make. I usually add fresh basil to the ricotta and mini meatballs instead of kielbasa. I have also made it in a 13x9 pan and taken it to potluck dinners."
"This was very good and filling for the calories. I will make sure I add a little salt next time. It was just a little bland."
