Ratings & Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatile and delicious This recipe is delicious, easy, and very versatile. These are ingredients I typically have on hand (in some variation.). I've swapped out beef for the sausage, used cheddar if I didn't have mozzarella, used chili style tomatoes in place of Italian style. The original recipe is great but it sure is nice it's so versatile and still delicious. Thanks Kraft kitchens!

I was looking for something to cook that was easy, as I am not the regular cook in the house. In fact, I rarely cook, but my husband worked all day and I was home. This recipe was simple and simply delicious! I added to the recipe by adding one clove garlic, a small can of drained mushrooms; and a small can of tomato sauce for additional sauce. I also combined two different pastas (rotini & bow ties). I would definitely make this dish again because my husband actually enjoyed something that I cooked!

I doubled the pasta, for my family of six and subsequently doubled the tomatoes, sausage and cheese. I didn't double the spinach b/c I only had one bag. Next time, I will keep the pasta doubled and still double the tomatoes, but I will not double the cheeses. I will see about the sausage at the time. It wasn't TOO much, but it was a lot. This was amazing. But too much cheese. Oh - I used turkey sausage, too. This was fantastic. Thanks Kraft!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I did this a little differently. I did this a little differently. The recipe in the Spring 09(pg 15)called for the pasta to be cooked in the canned Italian tomatoes (I used 2-14 oz. cans.)-adding the spinach at the end. In a large skillet, I browned 2 lbs of boneless chicken that I seasoned with Italian seasoning. When the chicken was done I added the pasta to the chicken and added the cheese on top. This turned out excellent, was very easy and I will definitely make this again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very tasty. Very tasty. At first glance I thought like many of the others that this dish would be too bland, but the amount of flavor is very surprising. I did add fresh mushrooms as I had some I needed to use up. I also tossed in a few dried onion & garlic flakes. The only thing I will do differently in the future is put in the whole lb of sausage instead of 1/2 as the recipe calls for. The sausage to noodle ratio wasn't quite right.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This is in your "winter 2007" magizine and the recipe is WRONG ! This is in your "winter 2007" magizine and the recipe is WRONG !!! It says in stept 2 to add the spinage, toamtos and DRESSING. I was glad to see it here in the newsletter so that I knew that I wasn't going crazy and missing the dressing that was not listed in the ingeridents. It sounds very good and very easy. I'll try it this week. My produce market has greens on sale...maybe I'll use them instead of the spinage.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I made this last night for dinner. I made this last night for dinner. My husband took the leftovers to work for lunch. He just sent me an e-mail, and this is what it said: "I think I may have had the best lunch I’ve ever brought to work just now…I heated up the sausage/pasta dish you made last night and it was even better today… awesome." I would use 2 cans of tomoatoes next time, too, and i like the suggestions below for turkey sausage, etc..
