Don't know that I'd serve this to guests, but it was a great weeknight meal. I can't see how anyone would say it lacked flavor. Oh well, to each their own.
I used gluten free pasta and I thought this dish was amazing in flavor. You have just a touch of heat from the red pepper flakes and a nice creamy contrast from the heavy cream and parmesan cheese. It was very satisfying and I loved how veggie-packed this dish is. I cannot wait to have my left-overs tomorrow!
I'm really surprised by all the 5 star reviews. I thought this dish lacked flavor. It was filling but very disappointing. Blah.
This was tasty and I will definitely make again. I used 9-10 oz of extra lean ground turkey instead of beef and omitted the red pepper flakes. My husband and I just sprinkled some on to our dishes so the kids didn't complain about the spice. I also used almond milk instead of heavy cream b/c I don't eat dairy. It just tasted really homey and comforting.
This was quite tasty and, with a simple side salad, a perfectly filling dinner. Of course it took longer than the suggested CL cooking time - think closer to 1 hour total including cleaning - but that is not that long really. Yep, yummy, pretty easy to make, and a somewhat short time to make overall....what more could you want? :)
Really great! I love the last minute addition of cream.
Quick and easy. I had no rigatoni so used Barilla campanelle instead and it worked just as well. Delicious dish on a cold winter night with a glass of red wine. Will use recipe again.
I also thought this was a great weeknight meal. Not something I would necessarily serve to guests. Lots of veggies, very filling - a "ski weekend" recipe for us! :-)
It's amazing. I used 28 oz of tomatoes, a bit more pasta, and about 14 oz of Italian chicken sausage and loved it.
Wonderful mixture of flavors for a cold and windy night. This is a fast prep, just 30 minutes. Served with a Caesar Salad , garlic bread, and delicious wine. Be sure to double the recipe. Absolutely will make again!
For a quick weeknight bolognese, I thought this was a very good.
