The prep for this recipe is not for the faint hearted or those in a hurry…unless you prepped the ingredients (less the noodles) overnight. Not sure how that would turn out.
BUT!!!! I swear by Rachael. I use every tip and trick she has taught me since 30 minute meals. This recipe did NOT disappoint!
I made a few adjustments: when sautéing the garlic in the sausage pot, I deglazed with some red wine before adding some quality marinara (I forgot crushed tomatoes). I also mixed Italian sausage with ground turkey for a meatier sauce. To the ricotta mix, and the white sauce, I added some garlic salt in addition to the pepper.
The portions were also insanely huge—enough to feed a big family, for sure. I can’t wait to eat leftovers tomorrow—-for some reason everything seems to taste better the next day.
Thank you Rachael!!!! I’m literally your biggest fan!!! :)
