I actually liked it!! I did tweek recipie some. I did use i think del monte garlic and onion sauce. whatever sauce you want is fine. 1 10-16oz can of sauce is fine and 1/2 cup water. I did half ricatta and half cottage cheese. I also added more cheese. 1 cup of mixed white cheeses: mozorella, italian cheese mix and parmesian. Used in the mix w/ ricatta/ cottage cheese and spinach. Topped with all cheeses. I do not know what "trumpet" shaped pasta is so i used worked just fine!! I did put on stove and cooked in cast iron skillet and put also in oven for about 15 minutes or so as well.


You may have difficulty finding the Chunky & Savory version of the ‘Veggie Smart Italian Sauce’ and ‘trumpet-shaped pasta’. Go with your favorite pasta sauce and smaller shaped pasta, and you’ll be fine. Read this recipe carefully as directions could be written more clearly. I messed up by combining all the ingredients together under Step 1 when intended to be two separate mixtures. That gets clarified when 3 things are layered together in Step 2. Frankly, I’m not sure if this didn’t simplify the recipe without losing any taste or texture. This was pretty good but dull and boring when it came to flavor. Adding a few spices not included in the ingredient list quickly and easily fixed that concern. Some was leftover, and it had more flavor the second day. I will use this as a base recipe next time, and deviate by introducing more seasonings. I believe this recipe is extremely flexible, and an Alfredo sauce w/ Cajun shrimp could be added to make a skillet pasta dish. I also suspect kale could be subbed for spinach/arugula, and other veggies could be added. The main prep time issue is boiling water & cooking pasta. If that is done beforehand (or you have leftover pasta on hand), this dish could be ready to serve in less than 30 minutes. A 10 oz. tub of baby spinach and a 15 oz. ricotta cheese will leave about 25% of each unused {next time, the entire amount of each container is going in}.

We enjoyed this dish and wouLd only make one change, which would be to eliminate the water or cut it way back. The dish had way too much liquid!
