We really liked this recipe! I cut back on the amount of sausage because I was afraid it would be too spicey and it was just right. I also added zucchini along with my tomatoes and was a great addition.

I made this (doubled) for my family of 10. It received a rousing approval. We did not have as many tomatoes as the recipe called for ripe in the garden, but even with half, it was wonderful. I did not double the garlic, as I'm careful to avoid too much "garlic breath". :)
