    Quick and easy crowd pleaser

    Very easy to throw together for dinner during the week. Used about twice the amount of sauce suggested in recipe, and added mushrooms, red onion, artichokes, and Italian sausage as well. Adjust sauce and cheese to fit amount of toppings, however, too much sauce will ruin the pizza-like taste.

    I made this recipe last night, it was just ok..nothing special. I didn't think 2 cups of sauce was enough, mine was a bit dry....if I make this again I would add more sauce. I added fresh mushrooms too because I had some in the fridge that needed to be used up, simply recipe, just nothing special.

    The taste was soo great! The bell peppers definitely added to this great recipe! I like my pasta very saucy so I would use a little less pasta than what the recipe calls for but otherwise good!
