    This recipe was delicious!! My husband loved it. I took the advice of the other reviews and added alot of italian spices, such as oregano, basil, thyme, & italian seasoning, and also fresh garlic and about half a can of chicken broth. After all that it was amazing and I will definatley make this again  -  22 May 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Excellent. Quick and easy. Used diced tomatoes with Italian seasoning. Used sweet basil Italian sausage and added additional amounts of garlic, oregano and basil. Served on top of bow tie pasta and topped with fresh shredded parmesan. Will make this many more times and for company.  -  16 Oct 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Now this is supper in a flash! Good, simple dish with just a few basic ingredients, good for any reason, but especially when time (and energy!) is at a premium. In the interest of preparing this as quickly as possible I simmered the sausage in water for 15 minutes before browning them in a little olive oil. I also added fresh minced garlic to the vegetables. The aroma was intoxicating. I had mine on its own (well, except for a nice glass of Cabernet Sauvignon), Hubs had his over penne pasta. Flavorful and satisfying. (Some of that red wine would also have been delicious added to the dish itself!)  -  23 Apr 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
