Too liquid-y, had to boil for longer to try to get rid of water, would recommend not as much water. Otherwise delicious!

Yummly Awesome, left mushrooms out, cooked in pressure cooker which intensified the flavor

it was good pretty easy
Definitely a favorite, I roasted my own red peppers and added a little heavy cream at the end, my husband loved it.

Thank you. I replaced the meat to turkey and Italian turkey sausage, and added some Marsala wine to it, the pot came out delicious. Thank you
I over cooked the pasta and didn't have two ingredients
Not good ended up doing it in the oven far to watery

Enjoyed the receipt. Used German smoked sausage (mistake). I like the idea of chorizo so I'm going try it next time.
not good at all. tasted bland.
Very nice... I used fettuccine instead 😉
Added chilli and paprika for a bit of a twist 👍🏼

Delicious!!! I used smoked sausage and chorizo and it was delicious!
Maree E. 11 Apr
It was delicious only did half the sausage amount and used chorizo - worked well. A lot of cheese so might reduce it next time. Added some chili flakes on serving - if you like a little bit of a bite especially with the chorizo.

Very delicious but had to add more cheese and more sausage to be equal. Also, it feeds 4-5 people rationally. But still good!

This dish turned out remarkably tasty and simple to make. My family really enjoyed it, very flavorful. Thanks for sharing!

It was great but the Parmesan stuck to the bottom of the pan. Next time I’ll wait to add that last. Definitely a repeat.
Super good super easy

fabulous! minus the mushrooms! (mushrooms-yuck)
It was good BUT it wasn’t as flavorful as I would have liked
Turned out great, used cubed bacon instead of sausage to add a little more salt instead of salting water, also used cheddar as the cheese and added broccoli. Love it!!!!!!!!
Scott Edwards 27 Dec 2017
Was awesome. added about 1/2 lb of hamburger
Mallori Steele 20 Dec 2017
Should have added more stock and cooked pasta longer .
Cecilia Petersen 11 Dec 2017
Great! I didn’t add much cheese, but it worked fine anyways

This turned out surprisingly tasty! Kind of like a smokey or full flavor mac & cheese. I took the advice of other reviewers and added the cheese and spinach at the end... great advice. I can see how it could be disasterous otherwise. I also finely processed the mushrooms as we arent a mushroom family. I didnt want to sacrifice the flavor by not adding them. Ended up working real well..couldnt even tell mushrooms were in it. Otherwise, everything in this dish worked real well together and I will be making again!! 4 star just because the directions shoukd be changed to add cheese and spinach at the end.

It was delicious! Entire family enjoyed it. It would be quicker to cook pasta in a separate dish. We added cheese at the end.
