WOW! Sooo awesome. I made the full recipe, but switched out one of the quarts of heavy whipping cream with Half & Half. I also didn't have any tomatos, so I threw in a jar of Barilla. This recipe is foodgasm worthy and will become a regular in our home.
The flavor on this dish is out of this world! Although I read the reviews for substitues I followed the recipe pretty closely except added quite a bit of basil and some shredded mozzarella. The one downside about this is it did take a lot of pans a quite a bit of cooking time before going in the oven. I think next time I make it'll do some shortcuts to minimize the time in the kitchen. I cut the recipe in half and it still had leftovers after 8 servings.
This wasn't that great for us. It had way too much cream in my opnion. That was all we could taste. DD liked it, but DH and I decided to eat something else for supper. Maybe I did something wrong, because most reviewers loved this.
This was a GOOD one. I cut the recipe in half as the whole recipe would feed an army. I still had a few leftovers. I used ground venison (that I spiced up) The sauce was awesome. I would have chopped the peppers instead of strips. Added some chopped onions. This again was a keeper. Thanks for sharing
I doubled this recipe for a large work luncheon. Substituted whole milk for heavy whipping cream, otherwise I followed the recipe. Cooked it in a large roaster. Everyone raved about it. Absolutely delicious. Next time I might add some spinach for color and flavor. A little pricey.
This was absolutely yummy! I used a combination of 1/2 and 1/2 and heavy cream because it is what I had on hand and cut the recipe in half...and still had 1/2 a pan left after my family of 6 ate! I also used a 29 oz can of slightly drained petite diced tomatos and didn't puree them. While at my Scavo family reunion I was told my Great-Grandpa Frank made the best baked mostacciolis ever using home-made sausage...until I find his recipe this one will definitely do! Most excellent!
I forgot to add the star rating. 5 all the way!!
Absolutely delicious! I halved the recipe though. Sauce came out perfect! I cut up a large tomato and a half, skipped the processor / basil part, and threw it in as-is into the sauce. yum yum. Definitely a keeper in our house. Thanks!!
I admit - I only used this recipe as inspiration. I had fresh tomatoes, left over italian sausage, leftover carmelized onions, leftover roasted red peppers (all from a pizza party) and then used this recipe as inspiration. I added additional fennel seed and italian sausage seasoning, cream, parm, garlic and pasta. It was really great! Thanks!
This was great! I made it exactly as is well except on top I used parm reggiano and I also halved it. I loved the freshness of the tomatoes and basil. I never used red bell pepper when I make Italian dishes, but I will now, what a difference! Some mozzarella on top would be good too! Thanks for posting!
