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.

This came out really wierd. I would say it tastes more like a pasta slad than a regular pasta dish. I only used 2 cups of cheese and it was too much. My kids were looking at me like I was crazy. Won't be making this again.

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!!!

I was shocked at how easy this was - my 14 y/o daughter did the whole thing her self. She followed the recipe, except for substituting colby for cheddar. (I would also recommend seeding the tomatoes.) The colors were visually appealing and the food was ooh, so tasty!

Had some sausage from a fundraiser and was looking for recipes and came across this one. I knew from the ingredients that my husband would love this, and I was right! I used a can of Italian diced tomatoes and cut the cheese two 2 cups. The olives really complimented the dish well. I served it hot and it was great! Will make again sometime!

This was awesome. But I changed it a bit, didnt have everything on hand. I used whole wheat pasta, garlic, pork sausage, japaleno slices, mushrooms, tomato's, and a tiny bit of olive oil and about 3/4 cup of mozzarella cheese. Ok, so I guess I changed it alot. Im sure both ways are Fantastic!!

Pretty good, and very easy. Not sure if the pasta and sausage were supposed to be hot or cold, so I did the pasta and sausage first so they could cool for a while, then added everything else. I added a small amount of olive oil to the pasta and mixed it, then added the sausage, veggies and cheese. As a result, it worked as a cold pasta salad and that's how I served it along with some Irish Wheaten bread. Although I'd like a little more flavor so garlic, salt, and pepper would be welcome in this, it was surprisingly flavorful for not having those ingredients. I added in some chopped cucumber just because I had some on hand. It added some additional color to the salad. thanks for the recipe!
