We really enjoyed this for dinner. It was a bit wet in the bottom but I think DH added frozen broccoli instead of thawing it. We made a few changes based on what we had. We used 1 lb of sausage and 12 oz of broccoli. The only change I would make would be to add green onion either in addition to regular onion or in lieu of. I also didn't have any cayenne or tomatoes. The dish was great without and I can't wait to try it with them.

Excellent recipe. I used fresh broccoli chopped very fine and doubled the amounts of both sausage and ricotta cheese. Heats up great as leftovers, too.

OUTSTANDING!! I just made this for Christmas brunch...what a hit! I used 4 cups fresh asparagus and it was fabulous. I omited the ricotta cheese (don't care for it), so I added some jack cheese instead. Served it with a spoonful of sour cream on top. I will definitely make the again...and again! Thanks for a great recipe!
