My family really liked this and I thought it was ok...sausage really added flavor. The thing for me, is I make these pasta bakes often and I didn't think the Starter really added anything...same amount of time, number of dishes used and slightly more expensive using the Recipe Starter then if I made my own.
My husband really liked this and he doesn't usually like pasta dishes...He loved the taste of the fresh basil....He did say it could use more sauce though, I agree.
I added a can of tomato sauce and used ground beef instead of sausage(I don't like sausage).I also cooked the onion with the beef and garlic instead of adding it with the sauce...
