I made this last night, the day I received my August issue in the mail. I didn't have any sausage so used bacon instead and it was delicious. The only issue I had was with the pasta getting cold while I made the pesto, even though I had all the parsley ready to go in the food processor and it does all come together very quickly. I reheated it once the pesto was mixed in. Next time I will not wait for pasta water for the pesto and prepare it before cooking the pasta, using plain water.

Not worth it. I found the pesto to be very bland.

I thought this was a pretty good recipe. I tried it because I had a ton of Italian parsley in my garden that I needed to use. I used turkey sausage instead of pork but overall, a good one. I would make again.

This was very bland and dry. I would try doubling the meat if I were to make again.

I enjoyed this dish, although my family found it a bit too "green.". Used chicken Italian sausage. Tasted best when a bite full had a bit of all the ingredients. Worth making again.

Meh. I even added basil to the pesto. I liked the sausage on the top, but the pesto was pretty weak. Plenty better recipes from CL out there.
