    Yes! Finally I can start my family eating healthier, and this recipe is perfect to try chicken sausage. I used a brand with mozzarella and garlic/herbs and it was wonderful, sautéeing it thinly sliced. I used one garlic clove instead of three. Overall awesome taste and I actually found myself wishing I had more zucchini (when I cooked I thought 5.5 cups was going to be too much). Even thinking of following this recipe only with the chicken sausage & zucchini/onions and add to pizza for a yummy alternative.

    This was delicious, however, I read other reviews and doubled the sauce. Big mistake!! It was way too "wet". I added fresh mushrooms, and used chicken, fontina, spinach and roasted garlic sausage (from costco...mmmm!) thinly sliced. I doubled the sausage, which didn't add a signifcant amount of calories per serving. I think next time I will only make a half cup of sauce, and will sautee the onion and garlic first before adding the thin sliced zucchini. Tasty pasta dish.

    THis was edible, but I'm not looking forward to the leftovers. It was kind of pasty without a lot of flavor - the qualtiy of the sausage will carry the whole dish, as that's really the only flavor in it.

    This casserole is really good: easy to make and a little bit different. The flavor combination is great. Since chicken sausages vary, different brands will give slightly different variations. The only change I made was to substitute Monterey Jack cheese as I discovered at the last minute that I was out of mozzarella. Turned out great. I love

    I doubled up the sausage and the feta...and it was much tastier than I expected! Will definitely make again!

    Always outstanding! I sometimes sub ground turkey or chicken breast + italian sausage seasoning for the sausage and sometimes sub fat-free feta for regular, and it is still great. They key to adding flavor (aside from the sausage flavor) is to make sure to brown the zucchini & onion, and also to use good-quality chicken stock. This meal tastes even better the second day, and leftovers freeze & reheat well.

    I accidently bought cooked chicken sausage with red and green peppers, however I chopped it and browned it. Also it may be worthwhile to cook the vegetables in two batches so they brown better.

    This was awesome. I was worried about the sauce bc I honestly didn't think it would have any flavor but it really takes it from the sausage as well as the veggies. Only downside was that I didn't have any bread to wipe up the leftover sauce...so instead I used my fingers!

    Oh how I loved this dish. Had some chicken, spinach and feta sausage that I had purchased at my local market. I had no idea what to do with it. Found this little gem of a recipe and even after I messed up and put 2 tbls of flour instead of 2 tsp of flour. I just added more chicken broth and in hindsight I'm thinking a little white wine would've worked as well. I will definitely be restocking my pantry with these items and making this one again.
