This was quite good and easy to prepare. I skipped the bacon and added a little more pork sausage, it had a nice flavor. I used whole wheat pasta and served it with a salad and Italian bread for a nice meal. Made for ZWT4

Lovely change from the ordinary. I added mushrooms & a little extra seasoning. Served with gluten free spaghetti, topped with a little parmesan for a fabulous dinner. Thanks Kelly for another winner. Made for ZWT4

This was great! I added a bit of extra garlic and threw in some sliced mushrooms as suggested. Next time I think I will use spicy sausage to up the zest and add the olives too! All around a great recipe that my family really enjoyed. My mom came over to pick up my son and even commented on how good the house smelled to boot. Thanks! ZWT4 Summer '08
