Delicious! Made as directed using fresh ground Italian sausage from a local butcher. Love how quick and easy it is to make.

Quick, easy, delicious and light. Lots of flavor without lots of simmering. Suggest doubling the recipe. Hearty enough to eat for dinner with crusty bread and a green salad. Thanks, Ridgely, for sharing! I am a big Cooking Light fan!

Absolutely wonderful!! Quick and simple and sooo full of flavor. A great way to sneak in spinach! I used the tortellini pasta as suggested in the reviews. The only thing I'll do different next time is double it!!
