Pretty good recipe. I made it a while ago so I can't remember exactly how much I liked it. Will try making it again and revise my review.

Very nice flavour. I made it exactly as stated and served it over lemon pepper fettuccine. I think next time I will add more spices as I think the cream toned down the spicyness.Also I will probably use hot Italian sausage instead of the sweet Italian sausage. Many thanks for a great meal.
