    I think it looks fine. Added my own twist with some sriracha for some heat. (Lightly)

    This was yummy! I substituted chickpea noodles for regular pasta and crumbled tofu for ricotta to make it even healthier.

    Used bulk Italian Sausage instead of ground pork. Also added minced garlic to the sausage the last 30 seconds before adding the rest of the ingredients. A flavor pasta sauce is key to making this flavorful.
    Good, quick and easy. I didn't have ricota, added some mussarela though. I'll try again another time.

    Decent enough dish though some garlic and maybe even minced shallots would have improved this recipe to a 5 star. Ricotta cheese was a welcome addition though.

    Delicious! I made enough for leftovers! Probably won't make it thru the night.
