    great! i substituted some veggies for others and used mozzarella cheese instead of riccota (since I don't for it)

    Really good. Didn't need the 1/2 cup of water, it was creamy enough when mixed with the pasta.

    We all loved it, even tge kids! I would recommend cooking the sausage first and then cutting it up though.

    Delicious! I sautés lots of minced garlic before adding the red pepper and zucchini. I also added mushrooms, an Italian seasoning blend and minced onion. Served this with garlic bread. The whole family loved it

    very plain, too plain for my liking. But after adding several different spices I loved it

    Disappointed. It was very bland. I even tried adding garlic, salt and pepper but it still needed something.

    This turned out to be a hit! My husband loved it and just kept saying how good it was and my children wanted to take some leftovers home with them. I did add a bit of garlic powder to it just to spruce up the flavor. I also made the zucchini fritters that you can find on Yummly to go with this recipe. Those were amazingly good as well and gave a nice change of texture with this pasta dish.

    We used vegan Italian sausage and added in garlic and mushrooms! The outcome was perfectly delicious!

    Amazing. I didn't have ricotta, so i used feta instead and it was still grand.
