    Aubergine910's Note:

    I found this in an old Good Housekeeping Magazine (Dec. 2005) in my Dr. waiting room. We love it and it freezes beautifully. You can sub turkey Italian sausage for the regular. Don't skimp on the fennel, it makes the dish. I also disregard the amounts of salt and pepper and just season to taste (it does need a bit more salt than stated in recipe).

      Very tasty! I used turkey sausage and reduced sodium chicken broth to bring down the sodium content. Have made this a few times now and it has become a family favorite.
