Mmmmmm... This was super yummy. I've made it twice already because it was so good. I made it as is, making no substitutions except for a yellow pepper for one of the reds because that's what I had on hand. The recipe didn't specify to remove the casings or not on the sausage; the first time I made it, I tried leaving it on.. The sausages were difficult for me to brown, and some sausage fell out of the ends anyway so we had a mix of big sausage tubes and small browned chunks like when browning ground beef. When eating it, we decided we much preferred the parts with the casing removed, so the second time I made it, that's what I did. My family had it over pasta, and I had it over spinach. It is delightful.
