The aroma in my house while this was cooking was absolutely amazing! The only thing I changed was to add a bit of sweet onion and omit the first tbsp. of olive oil. I also cut the cooking time by a total of about 15 minutes. I will definitely make this again, but will prick the sausages and parboil them for a good ten minutes before browning them. I didn't use the oil to brown the sausage because I have a really good non-stick Dutch oven. The only thing I could find fault with was that, although the meal was great and the veggies were done to perfection, it contained far too much fat. I wonder if it would be as tasty with regular breakfast sausage? Thank you for a great meal idea, Marie.
