      All enjoyed this tonight. It had a rich and full flavor. I used bulk It. sausage and 28 ounces of tomatoes. Thank you Art for this wonderful recipe. It's a winner.

      Tried this last night and my husband and I both enjoyed it very much. I was pleasantly surprised at the additional sweetness the caraway seeds seemed to make. One question, though: After stirring the microwaved sausages (after the first 5 minutes), the recipe just says "cook until done." How long is that supposed to be? I was concerned about microwaving them too long. I did about a minute, and that seemed to work, but could have used some specifics there!

      This made for a great meal. I used hot Italian sausages (stovetop cooked) over penne pasta. I doubled the recipe, using 2 cans of diced tomatoes (1 regular & the other fire roasted tomatoes with garlic), I felt as though the balsamic vinegar really helped create the depth of flavor this meal had. My daughter found it to be a little too spicy (guess I should have used regular Italian sausage). My family enjoyed this , but despite the fact that it was so easy to pull together, I don't think it is something we would have a "taste" for on a regular basis (if that makes any sense). Thanks for sharing!
