The wonderful flavor of this dish certainly belies its simplicity! I loved the combination of the sausage, sundried tomatoes and vermouth cream sauce. It was definitely easy enough for a weekday night, but elegant enough for company. I served it with crusty bread and PetitFour's Spiced Cheesecake (Spiced Cheesecake) - a winning combination! Thanks, PetitFour!

Loved this pasta dish. Made as written but added more half and half to make more sauce. DH had three servings to finish it off.

Husband says it's a keeper and I agree, As with another reviewer, i used milk instead of the cream. :)
