    Sophaholic's Note:

    Very easy and tasty basic recipe. I used two cans of tomatoes, minced garlic (in a jar) turkey sausage and low fat ricotta cheese to lighten and simplify the dish. You can use one can of tomatoes, but I like my sauce to have an abundance of tomatoes.

      Wasn't bad, but I expected the sausage to be the star and we barely noticed it! I even used a little more than called for... Next time I would bump up the spices and the sausage quantity. Not bad, but just not remarkable. If I try this again, I'll re-review, Sophaholic.
