I like this recipe, I had been wanting some food from Olive Garden for the longest and couldn't get any, so I decided to make my own Olive Garden. I tried this recipe and my family loved it. The garlic bread and tomato was a wonderful idea. If I could add one suggestion it is that it needs salt, but other than that it was delicious
This was extremely easy to make and tasted amazing! I made it for a friend's birthday party and it was a hit! I used spicy Italian sausage in lieu of sweet sausage to give it a little more kick. I used store-bought garlic bread, but will try making my own with fresh bread next time. Great recipe!
My husband was very pleased with this dish and loved the use of the Johnsonville sausage instead of ground beef. It was a nice twist putting garlic bread on top of the ziti. I would make this again, but, I would add some ricotta to the sauce mix next time for my personal preference.
Had family come for dinner today and everyone just loved this recipe.
Rave reviews. Thanks so much for this recipe. I made this recipe exactly as posted. Absolutely delicious.
I thought this was a very tasty dish. The only thing different I
did was to put the basil leaves under the tomatoes before cooking & sprinkled dried basil on top when finished for garnish, so to speak.
I didn’t have any fresh basil, but it still made a beautiful presentation. This made a hearty meal that we thought was very good. Next time though, I’ll add some sautéed onion just as a personal preference.
Very easy to make. Loved the garlic bread on top, it was a nice twist to a classic. My family really loved it.
So quick an easy to make with lots of flavor. I forgot the garlic bread but I know next time I will try the bread on it. Mmmm just thinking of it is making me hungry again!
