Reviews for Sweet Potato Sausage Casserole
"I will not be making this again. It took a lot of time and effort, and the flavor just wasn't there."
"A family favorite. It is such a good comfort food with great variety."
"I was hesitant to even try this recipe, but it turned out great. I did add extra salt, pepper, and some cayenne pepper for a kick. Will make again"
"I didn't care for this recipe. The sweet potato and sausage worked well together--but with the sweet potato, tomato and pasta did not. The entire recipe seem disjointed."
"This is really good, nice colours in the dish and great flavours too. I had some onion cheddar soup that I had made from scratch leftover, so I used that in place of the heavy cream and omitted the onions from the veggies."
"This is the best casserole I've ever had! I've got 5 different families hooked on it already and not a single person that didn't like it. It's the perfect combination of flavors and it's just as good when reheating it as leftovers!"
"My kids loved this and so did my husband. It is a favorite!!"
"I love this recipe. Sounds like an odd combo but its delicious. I use turkey smoked sausage and veggie delite pasta and convince myself to overlook the fat in the small amount of cream since its got the extra veggie in the pasta and the sweet potatoes so it's got to still be good for me. I've made this several times and considering I don't often go back to recipes, that's a big compliment."
"Kids absolutely loved it, but I found it to not have enough taste!"
"This is really delicious and also quite filling. Next time I'll try adding canned diced tomatoes with jalapenos to add a bit of a kick. Also looking for a lower-fat substitute for the heavy cream.... Would definitely make again."
