Super! I halved this (baked in an 8x8 pan) and used mild italian sausage (I did use 3/4# instead of 1/2# because it was the smallest amount I could buy). The directions mentioned onion and garlic but no amounts were listed so I used about 1/2 cup onion and 1 garlic clove. I used a spicy marinara which gave it a nice kick. The only change I made was adding a dash of salt & pepper to the cheese mixture and a little extra parmesan on top. Bake time of 50 minutes was spot on for my oven. Thanks for sharing!
