We really liked this. Here are some changes I made: We used hot Italian sausage as was recommended. Even my 6 and 4 year olds didn't find it too hot. It added great taste. Also, we don't have ziti pasta, so I used some spirals - you can really use whatever you have in your pantry. I doubled the sauce as was recommended, but didn't use it all. If possible, I think I would add an extra 1/2 of the sauce. I also doubled the spices in the sauce. We are cheese lovers and could hardly taste the mozzarella even though we put 1 1/2 cups. I would put 2 cups. We also grated mozzarella cheese over our individual servings as a topping. My husband is a big meat eater and would have liked more meat (I often double the meat in recipes for him) but I thought it was just the right amount. I baked mine in a 9x13 inch dish and didn't bother repeating the layers - just did one layer of each, ending with the Parmesan on top. I left it uncovered for about the first half, then covered with foil. I would make this again. It's a nice, flavourful change from ground beef dishes.
