Worth the cooking time - rich and tasty, comfort food at its finest! Just be warned if you're counting calories (as I am) - the calculator on Food.Com hasn't counted the sausages in its nutritional facts, the real calories for this dish are about 630, rather than 257. (Noo maybe if you just entered the sausages as Pork Sausages it'd correct?) A small quibble, and more my problem than any actual issue with the dish.
What a hearty and flavorful meal! I used cannellini beans; I used a chicken-with-mozzerella-and artichoke sausage and it was perfect in this. The sauce is so rich and flavorful with the wine and tomato base. Served over polenta (Microwave Polenta for Two with black pepper and parmesan stirred in) for a wonderful meal - thanks for sharing the recipe!
Wish I could give this more than 5 stars. I did add 2 cloves of crushed garlic with the onions. It needed a while to thicken up but once it did the result was oh so good! Definitely making this repeatedly through the winter- thanks Noo!
This was a nice and easy recipe. It needed something more maybe some garlic or peppers. I served it with green beans. It was quick which I like during a weeknight. Thanks for a nice recipe.
My DH loved this recipe especially with the mashed potatoes. Quick and easy to make too! Thanks Noo, made for PRMR, Feb 2009.
How tasty a recipe such as this one will be is SO dependent on using the best sausages you can. Among the best from where I shop are some chicken and chive sausages from a local Italian butcher's so I used these, doubled the recipe so that there would be some serves for the freezer, then added two other ingredients: 3 cloves of minced garlic garlic and 2 leeks, simply because I so love the blend of the flavours from garlic, onion and leeks. Like Halycon Eve, I used merlot and I used my Vegetable Stock for the stock. A very tasty meal which we enjoyed with Noo's totally delicious Cheesy Leek and Potato Bake which we've so enjoyed before. I was certainly glad that I'd doubled the recipe! Thank you so much for sharing yet another super recipe, Noo! Made for PRMR.
Delicious! DH found some turkey & chicken herbed sausages that were fabulous in this. I used a merlot for the red wine. I added extra beans to make it a little extra hearty, and I also subbed tomato paste for the tomato puree and flour, since that is what I had on hand. It smelled so good simmering, and was so flavorful. The only change I think I'd make is maybe to leave out the celery--mostly because DH doesn't care for it. Thanks so much for posting, Noo!
