Finding this grand recipe was a stroke of serindipity. I had everything on hand including peppers and mushrooms that were beginning to age. This makes a delicious meal and one that DH didn't cover with ketchup (giant compliment!). Fortunately there is enough left over for us to enjoy it again :D. Yum-O

Yummy! I used a hot Italian sausage and a mixed white and spinach 3-cheese tortellini. This was really simple and very tasty. I agree that mushrooms and peppers would be great additions - next time, lol. Thanks breezermom for a great keeper. Made for Tic Tac Toe 2010.

This was a very good dish. My whole family liked it. The whipping cream really gave this dish a smooth taste. I will make this again. Thanks for posting.

Followed the recipe exactly, and noting your suggestion of added vegetables, chose to use some zucchini, which made a really good addition! This was a rich and delicious dinner, while really very simple to put together. I used cheese tortellini, and this goes into my keeper book, breezermom, thanks! Made for PRMR tag game.

This is a real winner ! First of all, the marinara sauce recipe makes at least triple enough sauce for the pasta. I ended up freezing the leftover for later use. I had sweet Italian sausage, but added some hot red pepper flakes for a little kick. I followed the directions precisely (but I do wish the ingredients were listed in the order of use - it makes things easier to follow) except I did end up adding almost 3/4 cup of water to thin the sauce out. I also used a mixture of white and spinach 3-cheese tortellini. Thanks for sharing this amazing sauce recipe! Made for PRMR Tag Game.

This is amazing!! I was very tempted to add more sugar because I prefer a sweet sauce but decided I would wait until the end and add the cream/cheese. I am glad I didn't it was perfect as is. I used sweet sausage so it would not be too spicy for my boys. Only one change made: I used one 14.5 oz can tomatoes with sweet onions and two 8 oz can tomato sauce in place of the 28 oz tomatoes and 1/2 diced onion. Will make again for sure!!

I really enjoyed this recipe. For cream I normally substitute yogurt, it changes the flavor abit but I never have cream on hand and prefer the lower fat ingredient anyhow. To our preference, I cut back the pasta abit (5 oz) & increased the sausage (4 oz). Other than the recipe being abit hard to follow with the ingredients not in the same order as the directions, I liked the final outcome.
