Perhaps it was the sausage, but I found it bland and tasteless. I had to add a can of stewed tomatoes to evey make it edible plus the parm cheese.

Really great! Hard to believe it's so low in fat! I used hot chicken italian sausage, doubled the pasta and sausage and garlic...left all other ingredients as stated. I didn't have Sage so used poultry seasoning instead...wonderful! Couldn't believe it but my 2 and 4 year old devoured it! I served it with fresh grated parmesan. Super flavorful, super filling...we loved it! Thanks for posting! Pictures to follow shortly!

Delicious! I used sweet turkey sausage and more spinach than it called for. I also threw in some red pepper flakes for a little zing.
