"Delicious as well as being quick and easy! I used a quart jar of our home-canned tomatoes and otherwise followed the recipe exactly. My husband loved it and it will go in our regular dinner menu rotation."

"This was a quick easy dish to make. Unfortunately, I wasn't impressed with the flavor as it was very bland. I added extra pepper flakes, salt and black pepper to give it some flavor. Probably will not make again."

"Nice, quick dinner. I use hot Italian sausage and scale back on the amount of tomatoes. It has definitely become a favorite at home."

"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."
