This was very good. I had the opposite probblem of some reviewers, and my casserole was a little dry. I may add some pasta water or tomoato sauce next time. I also added fennel seed and red chile flake (my staples) to spice it up a bit. Otherwise - fantastic! Served with salad and herbed bread with butter.

This was a great weeknight meal. I only cook for my husband and I, so in reducing the pasta to 8 oz of ww penne, still gave us 2 9X9 baking dishes (one to eat and one to freeze) plus leftovers for lunch. I added a leftover portabella mushroom caps, chopped, for extra veggies. I used Al Fresco's Roasted Garlic Chicken Sausage and served with steamed broccoli. I would make again, probably not for company, though. It was perfect for the two of us.

Filling, fairly quick, and cheap meal. Used approx. 27 oz canned chopped tomatoes for half. Even cutting by half, still use 13x9 dish.

I made this dish a few times and really like it. Favorite combination is with sun- dried tomato and basil chicken sausage. I add basil and extra red pepper. Good quality sharp provolone is key to good flavor.

Solid weeknight meal. Easy to prepare. I halfed the recipe and it would still feed 8 in my opinion. I did not half the spices however after reading other reviewers. Definitely a good weeknight meal.
