      I modified this recipe based on what ingredients I had, and it was delish! Instead of ziti, I used campanelle, and instead of sausage, I used shredded chicken. I also changed it to half ricotta and half sour cream and added sauteed spinach. Thank you for sharing.

      Quick and easy to make and clean up. I used the mild Italian sausage and it was delicious. I also served a salmon pesto with it and with 10 people and there was just enough left over for 2 of us to enjoy for lunch the next day!

      Very, very good - my friend served this to us (I turned her on to Recipezaar) and used turkey sausage and also some browned ground chicken and it was very filling and tasty. Served it with a salad and some garlic bread - great meal!
