Top Review by Annacia

This is so much better than I expected, I thought it would be good but it's terrific. I used a chicken breast in place of sausage and it came out fork cutting tender. Another surprise was how very good the marinara was with the broccoli. I used tiny Yukon Gold potato's in place of slices just because I had them. It was very east and totally delicious. Thank you so Mirj.
