    i haven't eaten this yet, but this recipe reminded me why i dislike cooking. my largest skillet is apparently too small. my "9x13 inch pan is overflowing, and i am exhausted. this is not my kind of recipe, with all the chopping, cooking the sausage ahead of time, its way harder than i thought. - 10/12/09

    Amazing...this was really really good. It was my daughter's turn to cook and she added break crumbs on the top for a crunchy topping...I can't say enough about how good it is... - 8/5/09

  • A lot of work for something that was just ok. I love a saucy pasta, but there was SO much of it. May have been better overall with a larger pasta, macaroni was just not the right choice.

    It really does make a lot so be prepared - the 9x13 doesn't r - 2/8/13

  • I made this dish last night. Hubby and I loved it! It was so easy to make and the flavors blended perfectly. I suggest cutting the recipe in half. We won't have to cook for a week! Which is just fine with me because I can't get enough of it! - 6/21/11

  • Wow! This is really tasty. I didn't care for the sauce I'd selected but the peppers and spices changed all that. I made it just as written. I could only find smoked sausage which was good, but I can't help thinking it would be awesome w/real Italian sausage if I can find it made w/turkey. - 10/31/10

  • My husband never goes back for seconds, nor does he take leftovers for lunch. He did both when I made this. It really came out very good. The only change I made was to cut the recipe in half, so it serves 6 instead of 12. - 10/27/10

  • This recipe is delicious! We had it for supper tonight. My husband and I cleaned our plates. It's one of those meals you just feel good after eating. Cooking it was fun, too. the brilliant colors of the red and green peppers and the smell of the garlic and later melted cheese was awesome. - 11/18/09
