I tried making it and got my genitalia stuck in a toaster. The instructions were very unclear and I am severely injured while writing this review. Also this was seriously dry, drier than my Saturday nights eating pizza. I thought this would help me get girls, but now i can't even sit comfortably.

I didn't precook the noodles so I added a cup of water to the sauce. It still could have used a little more sauce. I couldn't find mild Italian turkey sausage so I used hot and it worked great. I left out the fennel. I would actually give the recipe a 4.5 because it is a little costly for meat and all the cheese and it took me about an hour to get it in the oven, but my family of 4 really enjoyed it. It was large enough for two dinners. I'm going to make it again this weekend and freeze it in two batches for weeknight dinners.
