I made this for our pastor one night. He loved it so much we nicknamed it “Jason’s Pasta.” It’s a sneaky way to get our kids to eat more veggies. —Suzie Foutty Mansfield, Ohio

"Mmmm-definitely use the cheese! Omitted the mushrooms & used Trader Joe's Italian chicken sausage w/red & green peppers with about 10 spinach leaves-fussy hubby. He put sriracha sauce on his."

"Made with Sweet Italian turkey sausage but I bet would be tasty with Hot Sausage as well. Very yummy, light and great with a salad."

"Made this tonight using a sweet Italian turkey sausage and my husband and I really enjoyed it very much. Next time we might try using a spicy turkey sausage just to add a bit of kick. We also didn't think the cheese really added much to the dish so will leave out next time. This will be made again and again. Super simple, quick and great flavor!"
