Claire - Jun 10, 2019

Good midweek supper

steven - Jun 09, 2019

Tasty. Excellent pasta dish. Added more veggies to it and spinach instead of kale. Love it

Sara - Jun 08, 2019

I’d swap out the kale for spinach next time but loved the flavour I also used chicken sausages perfectly delicious

Peter - May 31, 2019

Nice!

Darren - May 28, 2019

Quite a dry meal

Ana Maria - May 27, 2019

I wanted to try a pasta dish from Simply cook. Not a big lover (I'm italian). I recommend using the best ingredients for a good dish (good sausages especially). Also, please don't use cheddar on top but a good old parmesan which is the best with pasta. The spices are quite intense, and I think you should leave it 10 minutes more in the oven like all the recipes in here, which are hasty for the purpose of their "quick" meals ideas.

James - May 23, 2019

Another great pasta dish with sausage meat, use Cumberland sausages to enhance the amazing flavour

James - May 23, 2019

Very tasty use Cumberland sausages to enhance the amazing flavour

Georgie - May 23, 2019

I liked it but if you’re not keen on fennel avoid!

Clare - May 23, 2019

I used more passata and swapped ricotta for goats cheese

Sue - May 07, 2019

Enjoyed this, quick and tasty. I think if I made it again I would use spicy sausages

Kerry - May 07, 2019

2nd time making this 1; this time I sub’d the sausage and kale for chicken and peppers which I preferred to the sausage, my husband is the one that asked for peppers instead of kale though and it all worked really well together =)

Mary - May 07, 2019

Should have taken sausage meat from the cases and made meatballs. But still delish

Richard - May 04, 2019

Wow amazing . Loved it

Karen - May 04, 2019

Very nice - we enjoyed thoroughly.

Victoria - May 04, 2019

Not too keen on this one. I prefer a bit more sauce in a pasta bake. I think the herbs in this were a bit overpowering too.

Agnes - May 04, 2019

The dish was awesome! Love it!

Jayne - May 02, 2019

Yet another tasty dish.

Kelly - May 01, 2019

Christina - Apr 28, 2019

Nice hearty meal, not overly flavoursome - but great comfort food. I used veggie sausages in this recipe. Have ordered again

Katherine - Apr 27, 2019

Very tasty ????????

Rachael - Apr 26, 2019

I liked this; however the kale or something was an overpowering flavour which spoilt it. I won’t order again.
