Perfect comfort food for those fast approaching chilly fall nights! The bake is what really brings this dish together, the sausage and arrabbiata sauce gave real nice spicy kick to it. This recipe's going into the regular rotation.

This was so good! I especially loved the basil, it was a nice, cool balance in contrast to the spice from the sausage and arrabbiata. Very flavorful and easy to make! I will definitely be cooking this again soon.

I don't get a whole lot of use out of my Dutch oven so I was so excited to try this recipe. The arrabbiata was incredible. This dish goes perfect with a big glass of wine! So good, you'll feel like you just ate at a 5-star restaurant.

I substituted the spicy Italian sausage for mild Italian sausage, and it was ok. I should have stuck to the hot, spicy sausage for more heat! Still, this recipe was really good. The only other thing I changed was I added white wine. The convenience of this recipe makes it perfect for weeknights!

I used ground beef instead of Italian pork sausage and I thought it tasted really good. The Arrabiata had the perfect amount of spice. I think the spicy sausage would have been too much heat for me and the kids. We also added Parmesan in addition to the mozzarella, so yummy!
