Unfortunately we weren't too impressed with this recipe. The sauce didn't reduce that much so the whole dish was soupy. All the flavors were great but we needed a bowl to eat it. Next time I ...

In response to the previous poster who asked how the sausage should be prepared: my recommendation is to remove the casing- especially if you're serving it to kids. If you don't remove the casin...

This is my family's new favorite recipe! They request it all the time! I make it a little healthier using whole wheat pasta, low-sodium chicken broth, and spicy Italian turkey sausage. We actual...

Absolutely wonderful recipe, quite elegant, extremely easy (I'm a novice) -- and restaurant quality taste! I used mild bulk sausage (did not add oil) and penne pasta. Not draining the sausage m...

4 stars with the changes I made. I added red wine (1/2-1 cup and reduced it longer) then added heavy whipping cream until thick and creamy. I threw in canned asparagus tips and fresh spinach. Gr...

Wow, this was VERY good! I used a pint of fresh tomatoes versus canned and I used fresh spinach versus frozen. I think this did make a big difference in the over all taste but this recipe still ...

We found it 'salt-less' and that it needed some salt. 1/2 tsp should be fine. All I can say is know your sausage and make sure it's hot, or this dish will lack the zippy flavour that it could ...

I just made this recipe. It's still simmering on the stove as I "speak". The official verdict is that this is VERY good. I layered my flavorings by using fresh and dried herbs as well as season...

Really easy to make, and very good. I used a whole bag of fresh spinach, instead of frozen. Also. I used mild italian sausage, then I add crushed red pepper to spice it up to my heat tolerance
