    mary winecoff's Note:

    I made this for my best friend's birthday. She is on a low-carb diet but I was also cooking for kids and men (A challenge!) I had NO leftovers. This came from a Bon Appetit magazine. Very easy and very good.

      Very good! I sauteed the red peppers onions, and garlic, added the sausage then added the paste deglaze with brandy. Added the shell and thyme to the broth and simmered for 20 minutes strained then added to the veggies and sausage. Then added the old bay , cream (used non fat half and half and the shrimp. Cooked for 5 or so minutes. So forgot the parsley! And missed it! I served over Green Rice. Thank you for an easy quick meal that was very good eats.
