YUMMY and very different. I made and enjoyed this recipe for Aus/NZ Swap Jan 2010 DH and DS liked it as well. I read through the reviews but did not find the sauce too thick, however I did use 2% milk and the cottage cheese. Maybe the ricotta would make it thicker. This is a lovely dinner but lots of pans to make it. Well worth the effort to put together and I think next time it will go faster for me. I used rotini noodles, cottage cheese, sharp chedder and low fat mozzerella. plus extra parm on top. I did not have bread crumbs, thought I did but couldn't find them. I did leave out the mushrooms (medical) but did add in more peppers. This is going to be a rotating dish for us as it is comforting, smells great, and warms up the tummy on these very cold days. Thank you so much.
My hubby really liked this recipe and the flavours. From some of the other reviews, for the sauce, I decided to to cut back on the flour and some cheese & substituted yogurt for the cottage cheese. For the vegys, I added minced garlic and some finely chopped jalapeno pepper & increased the mushrooms. Cut back abit on pasta & increased the amount of sausage. It was a perfect consistency for us. It's was also a nice change from a tomato based sausage recipe.
No one in my family was a big fan of this. It was overly hearty, I believe. The sauce turned out a bit thick, even after adding about 1/2 cup more milk than this called for. The flavor just wasn't there. This could be a good recipe if it weren't so thick and had a bit more lively flavor to it. Improve it! And let me know!
Great recipe! I had made Atsa Spicy Pizza Sausage for the sausage. I added 1 cup more milk and 1 T more flour. I didn't have any ricotta or cottage and it was still delish! I also used Italian Breadcrumbs for the breadcrumbs. Thank you!!
This is really good! I used grilled sweet basil Italian sausages, cottage cheese and the only shrooms I had were portabello. I did increase the milk by one cup. Other then that I made as directed. Nice and saucy.:)
This was ok, needed to be more saucy though, might try again more saucy
Very tasty! Thanks Leslie! :o)
Tried it last night for my husband. I had Melton Mowbray sausages (www.porkpie.co.uk), used mozzerella and cheddar. It was ABSOLUTELY fantastic! Will do it again for friends! Thanks! Jemima
Yum, DH ate half of this in one sitting, then sat around complaining about how full he was. Typical. Anyways, we had a few modifications. I was halfway through the prep when I realized I had no mushrooms, we Always have mushrooms, but not this time, not even one of those little cans. So we skipped the mushrooms but I can imagine they would have been great. Also I used some ground Italian Sweet Sausage that I cooked up (and kept in chunks) and used that. I sauteed the green onions and red peppers in with the sausage. Everything turned out great. Thanks Leslie!!
