Top Review by Cookworm

We loved this but I had to cut the sugar, salt and pepper down. I used 2 teaspoons of sugar and 1 teaspoon of salt and about 1/2 teaspoon of pepper. The only other change I made was to roast the sausages (cut up) with the fresh red peppers, onions and garlic all in the oven together at 425 for about 40 minutes - till tender. It saved me time. I made up the tomatoes on the stovetop and added them to the roasted sausage mix when I pulled it from the oven. Absolutely delicious. Thank you.
