    This recipe was easy to make. I added a bunch of Italian seasonings (basil, oregano, parsley, thyme, rosemary) along with some brown sugar. It made waaaaay more than one 9x13 pan and created quite the mess while I was trying to figure out what size pan to add to it. I ended up with a 8 inch square pan in addition to the listed pan. It smells fabulous!

    Tomato paste, canned tomatoes, ricotta, mozzarella and sausage are all LOADED with sodium. To add another tablespoon of salt to this, well, is just asking for trouble. If you have high blood pressure, AVOID this recipe. If you don't want to GET high blood pressure, leave out the tablespoon of salt.

      The salt level in this recipe is not as high as another reviewer has stated. The 1 tbs of salt is to salt the pasta water, for one POUND of pasta. The truth is, most of the salt goes down the drain with the pasta water, I find 1 tbs to be a small amount. Furthermore, I just checked my tomato products , my organic tomato paste contained 1% of the daily allowance, and a 15oz can of tomato sauce 12%. For one shared meal, this is not astronomical.

    I've been making this dish for years and it's a family favorite! I like to add one pound of spinach, which I mix into the ricotta mixture. Sometimes, instead of using sweet Italian sausage, I use spinach chicken sausage from Trader Joe's. It's a little time-consuming to make this, but it's worth it!
