Review This Recipe
Everybody loved this one!
Everybody in my family enjoyed this one. So easy to make! It will definitely become a regular on our menu. Good additions would have been mushrooms and sauteed onions.
Made this for Sunday dinner. My husband loved it. Told me I could make it again. I added sauted onions & peppers, I also sauted the garlic with these. I used my own choice of spaghetti sauce also. I wasn't crazy about the bread. But I will make this again.
Italian Sausage Sandwich Casserole
I tried this for dinner on Sunday. It was delicious. Accompanied with an antipasto salad it would be out of this world. It was also very easy to prepare.
I make this casserole whenever my son comes home from college. It is one of our favorites. It is flavorful and easy to make.
Not that great
The combination of mayo and cream cheese doesn't sound appetizing, and tastes only slightly better than it sounds.
This tasted almost like a lasagna for people who didn't like ricotta cheese or something. I didn't think it tasted anything like an Italian sausage sandwich.
