This is one of my bf favorite dishes with a healthy twist. We did the math and this ends up about 380 per serving (2 stuffed noodles). Enjoy sans guilt!

Great recipe! I used ground turkey instead of sausage and sprinkled mozzarella cheese on top and it was delicious.

We also thought this was a GREAT recipe! Didn't change a thing (ok maybe added abit more garlic cause I can't help myself) and it came out perfectly & with great flavour. I was short on time so one step I did differently is that I made the tomato sauce in an electronic pressure cooker. Awesome recipe, thanks for sharing
