My husband was hospitalized several years ago with a heart condition. The hospital provided a cooking class for heart healthy cooking. This recipe was in one of the handouts. I added the light sausage and have used this recipe ever since. Happy holidays!

I can't believe that this is a hospital recipe. Usually those recipes are terrible. this was really good, especially for something that is considered good for you. I would add more sage and perhaps from Fresh Rosemary, but aside from that it's good.
