Only made the sauce (not the baked pasta dish) using sweet Italian turkey sausage in uneven chunks rather than crumbled, sun-dried tomato paste, and added 1/2tsp red pepper flakes. Excellent. Served in small portions over fresh tri-colored linguine with the cheese sprinkled on top. Baby spinach/mushroom/tomato salad on the side. Gorgeous.

Excellent pasta dish with a lot of zip and flavor. Can't imagine making it without the kalmata olives, capers, and anchovies. That's what gives it the rich, earthy flavor and the tang. I doubled the anchovy paste and added crushed red pepper (all I had was mild Italian chicken sausage) and served with spinach. Next time, I will make much less penne--4-6 oz. would have been fine and I wound up fishing the extra out and using it another dish. Servings are huge, too.

This was perfect!! I used low fat Turkey sausage instead, can't tell the difference. I also used large capers and also very good. Quick and easy to make!

This was absolutely delicious. For the steady dieter, this is perfect for those who dont. Packs all the flavor and is a pasta dish. Only thing I did differently was used San Marzano crushed tomatoes instead of whole ones. I also accidently dumped all the brine from the capers in and I think it helped! If you like spicy, red pepper flakes only add perfection. This might be my favorite recipe for the WW lunch club!
