    Tarheel Georgia Peach's Note:

    This is based on a favorite recipe from a friend, but modified to be lower in fat: (1) uses Italian turkey sausage instead of regular Italian sausage; (2) halved the amount of sausage used in the original recipe; (3) cooked sausage in water instead of frying in oil as per the original recipe; (4) replaced cheddar with 2% milk sharp cheddar cheese. Even with these modifications, this dish packs plenty of flavor -- I don't miss a thing from the original recipe.
