I always try to follow a new, rated recipe exactly as written the first time, especially for reviews. I did exactly that except for using my own sauce for this one. My opinion? far too much thyme (may try a little rosemary next time), much too little ricotta mix, too little sauce, and although the sausage, which is what drew me to this recipe in the first place, sounded great, I agree with another reviewer that much of the seasoning needed is in the sausage. I would suggest getting a good quality Italian sausage, and be very sure to keep it well crumbled while cooking, as it tends to clump with the amount of fat in it. I would also use a smaller pan and make it into 5 layers instead of 3. (again more ricotta!) Definitely use a homemade, or favorite locally Italian made sauce. We have had a very successful and large Italian restaurant for over 50 yrs, all with our Italian family cooks, and I can guarantee a basic homemade sauce would be better than any jar you could buy at the supermarket! Sorry for the lack of enthusiasm on this one. I may try my own version sometime in the future, but I'm left still hungry after just finishing my dinner. Basic idea could be imrpoved upon.
