I love the extra flavor the Italian Sausage adds to these, it means there is little if any additional spice needed. I like to use a lot fat chicken or turkey sausage, but any type is good. I also use a sweet sausage because I need child friendly meals, but it is good with hot too. Weight Watchers: 6 points per serving when using lean turkey sausage and lean ground beef.
