VERY EASY! All you do is brown the sausage and then add everything all at the same time and then simmer it. The recipe does not specify how much and what type of pasta to use so I used about an 8 oz bag of Rotini (corkscrew style) pasta. Next time I will use 16 oz of pasta. It is very tasty, but it could use a bit more spice for flavor. I did not use the spicy Italian sausage, I think that would have made the difference. I did find it but, I had trouble finding the "Italian Style Vegetables". It consists of green beans, cauliflour, broccoli, carrots, lima beans and peppers.

This recipe was pretty tasty and easy to make. I too found it difficult to find frozen Italian blend vegetables, so I chopped and sauteed onion and zucchini, then added some frozen chopped spinach and frozen chopped green onion as a substitute. I also thought that this stew needed a touch of acidity (it seemed bland, heavy on umami, and lacking depth in flavor), so I would recommend adding a splash of red wine vinegar. I also added a generous pinch of red pepper flakes and some black pepper, too.

Our family loved this recipe! I used turkey sausage, put some fresh spinich, leftover potatoes and added large butter beans. We have been eating it for 3 days, and it gets better each time. For a family who has just hit hard times this recipe makes it easy to serve a great, healthy, affordable meal. Thanks

This was a very easy meal. However I was confused. The picture shows what looks like egg noodles, but the recipe didn't call for any, so at the last minute I left them out. I also added 2 cloves of garlic, 1 can white (great northern) beans, and a tablespoon of Italian seasoning.

This is a very easy yet tasty and filling stew. I have made it both with pork sausage and with turkey sausage for a leaner option, and it is wonderful both ways. My major complaint is that it definitely needs seasonings and spices. I have added a large clove of garlic to a half-recipe, as well as some parsley, basil, oregano, and crushed red pepper, and that improved the taste significantly. Also, the "serving sizes" seem to be waaaaaaay off. When scaling the recipe down to what is supposedly two servings, it feeds my husband and I for three days.

This was very easy and surprisingly good. Cooked sausage then just dumped everything into a slow cooker and let it simmer a couple hours til we were ready to eat. I did add a few cloves of fresh garlic and cooked some rotelle noodles al dente prior to dumping them into the stew.

I'd give this a 5 except I changed a lot to compensate for what I had on hand. I didnt have any preseasoned tomatoes so I used a can of diced tomatoes and a can of tomato sauce. I added my own garlic, thyme, basil, oregano, and pepper. I also used hot italian sausage. It came out soo so good.

Very good! I use 'veggies for soup' frozen blend instead of the italian blend. I also added a small can of cut mushrooms. I loved it and so did my extremely picky husband! **Update** I've made this about 15 times now and I change a couple things to taste--I either use the "hot" sausage OR I use regular sausage (or ground venison) but add diced tomatoes with chilis...too hot when you use both. I try to use low sodium broth. I don't ever add pasta, my husband eats it with oyster crackers. I serve it with a green salad and sometimes crusty bread. It is SO good!
