This recipe was just ok. I could not taste the pesto flavor(even used more then recipe called for). The spinach & turkey sausage did not help the flavor either. Italian sausage would be more flavorful,although not as healthy. I also, think it would be better if not baked. It was very creamy before it was baked,it was dried out after baking. This recipe was very expensive to make,therefore, being it was not exceptional, for the price,I will stick to a basic baked pasta recipe.
