Rated 4 out of 5 by from I've made this three times now, and this was the best of the three. I've made this three times now, and this was the best of the three. My husband LOVES it, and even though I hate sausage, I like it a whole bunch as well. It makes enough leftovers for at least another night's dinner (for 2) and a lunch. We let it simmer on low for 15 minutes and use sweet onions not red (just prefer them) and romano cheese instead of parmesan, because that's what we have on hand usually. Some people sprinkle a little mozzarella on top if we leave it out for the salad. It's saucy enough, and tastes awesome. Definitely a special treat/comfort food dinner with a nice salad.

After reading the other comments I "doctored" the recipe and the results were delicious!! First I used a few squirts of dressing to help brown the sausage, and I added the onions with some minced garlic and let those cook for a few minutes. I then added the WHOLE can of tomato paste (6 oz), plus about 1/4 a can of water. I then added 1/2 cup of the dressing at the end. I turned out great and there was plenty of sauce and pasta (I measured 4 heaping cups) for 4 people and some for leftovers, probably about 5 servings.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I made this for the first time and it was really good! I made this for the first time and it was really good! I used italian ground turkey sausage (not sure if I loved the taste of it because the fennel was kind of strong) but the pasta and sauce was really wonderful! I didnt measure the paste or the dressing, just added untll it looked juicy. I agree with others comments that you cant hurt this recipe by adding more! You dont need the parsley, its just for presentation. Parmesan defintely tops this off though ;) Yum- will definitely make again!

The sauce seemed dry so I added a whole can of tomato paste instead of just 1/4 cup (and I didn't want to waste it). I also added about 1/2 cup of marinara sauce after tasting the finished product which had a heavy vinegar taste from the salad dressing (another brand, store did not carry this Kraft flavor). It was OK the first night but not good at all the next night. I think I will stick to my own spaghetti sauce recipe and put it over rigatoni for a change and discard this recipe.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I did not care for this recipe. I did not care for this recipe. The reason might be b/c I may have the wrong type of dressing, but I'm not sure...the only dressing with this name I could find was KRAFT Sun-Dried Tomato Dressing & Marinade which was a vinaigrette. The description in the list didn't specify so I don't know if this is correct or not, but it made the sauce "oily" and I didn't care for it at all. Will someone please respond as to if there is another type of dressing I shoudl search for? THANKS!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I made this recipe the very first time it was released in the Kraft magazines. I made this recipe the very first time it was released in the Kraft magazines. I absolutely loved it, it was actually very saucy and not dry at all. But just the other night I made it for my husband using this online recipe... It was dry and very disappointed. My husband liked it but i felt stupid for talking out of my head how good it is. I believe this recipe has been modified, because the original recipe had a very long list of items and it took a long time to make.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a great recipe, I have made it in the past but made it again yesterday. This is a great recipe, I have made it in the past but made it again yesterday. Forgot something. Always taste the tomato paste!! I got some name brand paste and this "batch" is very bitter. Tomato pastes and sauces should pass the taste test prior to using, if too sour, add sweetner, too sweet, add lemon juice, too bitter, toss it!!! Also if too spicy add tomato sauce, too bland, add more spices. Don't always blame the recipe, ingredients are not always consistent.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Just made this tonight, and hubby loved it. Just made this tonight, and hubby loved it. I think he mentioned at least two or three times how much he liked it. Then, he likes anything with a lot of meat! I used half Healthy Harvest Penne and half lined rigatoni, sweet italian sausage, a white onion, tomato sauce instead of the paste, and robust italian dressing. The sausage really ups the calories and fat content, but I'm sure I'll make a similar recipe again - the sauce with the dressing is a great idea.
