      This was a great recipe, well worth all the time it took to make it. Will certainly make again!' This was a pantry dish for me, so I used what I had on hand - ditali pasta instead of macaroni, thyme instead of rosemary, half hot & half sweet italian sausage, and 2 cloves of garlic for a little extra flavor. I also left my parmesan rind whole & removed it before serving. I have to admit I was a little skeptical when I first looked at the recipe, but after trying it last night I was convinced this was a winner. This will make wonderful leftovers for hubby & I. I would say this should serve 8 easily.
