Excellent recipe. I used hot Italian sausage, and omitted the fennel seeds as I can't stand it. Also used home-made marinara sauce. Definitely make it a day ahead of when you want to eat it - the flavors really intensify. Thanks!

Yummy and very easy to make. No where on the recipe said how much to heat the oven to so I did 350F and baked it for 17 minutes. It was perfect! My husband said they should rename this to Sausage Pizza Ziti!! He loves sausage and mushroom pizza and said it tasted just like it! This was so yummy! THANKS Buitoni!!!

Oh, we ate too much!!! This was really good. When I went to the store to buy the contents, I noticed that the marinara sauce recommended in this recipe cost exactly twice as much as the Store brand that is in jars. Instead of buying two 15 oz. containers of the recommended brand, I bought only one....then I bought 1 jar of the store-brand marinara sauce in a jar. There was VERY LITTLE DIFFERENCE in taste between the two----so I recommend buying a less expensive brand. I also marbeled the cheese throughout the recipe before baking it.....soooo good!
