I tried the recipe as is, and these are my notes from making the recipe and thoughts from other reviews. 1. Some reviews state 60 Oz of ricotta. The recipe calls for 16 oz. This may be an error when planning. The recipe makes 8 servings, so if you type in more than 8 servings for planning, you will be making more than one plan. 2. This is extremely salty as written(1 Tablespoon of salt). I would start with half of that or even only 1 teaspoon next time, and season to preference of you family from there. 3. The recipe basically doubled the cheese and cut the meat in half from the original. We are cheese people too, so my family loved it. 4. Some people said it didn't make enough sauce. As written, mine had more than enough sauce. Their error may have been in that when cooking the sauce for an hour and a half, it states to cook it COVERED. If you cook it uncovered, it may evaporate so there's not enough sauce. Make sure to keep it covered.
