    Turned out to be very good

    Turned out good, I’d recommend when doubling get more than enough milk to cover the pasta.

    Would recommend halving (at least) the amount of spinach, not boiling the milk as it will curdle and cook your pasta separately.

    I wasn’t a big fan, but my boyfriend was pretty happy with it. If I decide to make it again I will be using less spinach.

    I changed it up just alittle by adding Moz instead of the cheddar slices and a can of diced tomatoes. It was amazing

    Pasta needs to be cooked first and the sauce is not good. Would not recommend at all

    It was good but it had an odd taste to it. I’m not a big cook so I wouldn’t be able to know how to fix it, but maybe it needs something other than cheese and milk for the sauce?

    It turned out better than I thought, I think I would have liked it better if it would had a sauce in a way or if I had some parmesan cheese or something. I’ll probably make again, but this is a great recipe!

    Family loved it. Key was getting crispy edges to the sausage before adding the rest. Added some chopped up mushrooms too and seemed not to take anything away from the recipe. Easy.

    Very bland! The sauce needs garlic. And maybe some red, yellow, and orange bell peppers.

    Sauce was very thick, good flavor but not a great mouth feel.

    Was absolutely delicous prep took a tiny bit longer than exoected but over all was good. It's very easy to take things out or add things on where it feels right😊

    This was delicious but I did improvise some. I doubled the pasta and cooked it separately and I added mushrooms, extra cheeseI used shredded, also added in some creamy garlic Parmesan dressing to thicken the sauce a little and add some flavor.

    Took about 15 minutes longer than recipe noted but very tasty, low maintenance and easy clean-up.

    Great pasta just needs a little seasoning don't need extras but I added mushrooms.....Tip: start the pasta on a separate pot (if your having issues with the cooking of the pasta) with the milk on low heat cover it and the add it to the skillet.

    went good with spicy sausage. just cook the raw sausage first and then follow the rest! I also added chilli flakes for spice!

    It was good but we used venison in place of the sausage and cut back the serving amount to make more.

    Pretty good. I didn't find it to have really any sauce though, which is something I like. Added some Alfredo and Parmesan to top it off and was perfect.

    A tasty one pan meal!. I did mine with tomato basil sausages and threw in some halved grape tomatoes at the end.
