    This is a favourite with my family; fairly simple but with good flavours and filling too. Super quick and easy.

    I'm rating this a 5, but I have to admit I changed it dramatically. First of all, I used brown rice instead of pasta. I used 12 oz. organic sausage, and added a can of diced green chilis, mushrooms, 3 tomatoes, a larger quanity of a fresh mixture of olives, and quite a bit of garlic. I cut the cheese way back to less than a cup. The end result was delicious.  -  30 Jan 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Love this recipe!! 5 ingredients and tastes gourmet. I halved the cheese as others did and used a can of well drained diced tomatoes...and I added a little garlic just because. Served with garlic bread and salad - yum!!!  -  08 Feb 2011  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
