    From Johnsonville, but you could sub turkey or vegetarian Italian sausage, too, I imagine.

      I agree that this is awesome! Everyone loved it! It was not hard to make although it is a little time consuming, but it is definitely worth the effort! Check it after about 25 minutes - I thought 30 was a little too long. Can't wait to make it again!

      This was awesome! I played with the recipe a little because I didn't want to take a trip to the store. I used andouille sausage, rigatoni and dried basil. I also added 1/2 cup of ricotta cheese and chopped zuchinni. This is definatley going into the rotation; however, I would suggest having company because my bf and I had lots of leftovers.
