Sausage & Fennel Pasta Top Reviews

Lisa - 11th July 2020

Too much fennel

Gemma - 11th July 2020

The fennel was a really overpowering taste for me, and I'd use slightly less water to make the spinach less watery. I'd use less ricotta too, perhaps swap it out with mozzarella or cream cheese.

Shuna - 11th July 2020

Everyone enjoyed this. Will choose again.

Very tasty, thumbs up all round. Cooked with premium sausages, not sure how it would have tasted with standard supermarket ones.
