This was very tasty...but I have to admit that I made a couple of changes.....nothing serious though. I found that the sauce was very thin and since we like a thicker sauce, I added the wine to the chicken bouillon (didn't have any chicken stock). I used 1 pkg. of the bouillon with 3 tblsp. of wine and about 2 tblsps. of cornstarch. Mixed this up and added it at the end to the sausage and pepper mixture. This thickened it up nicely and gave a lovely added flavour. Both DH and I loved this but it did make a lot....we both had healthy servings and there is more than enough for dinner tonight! It could easily serve 5 - 6!! I'll make this again, Summer's a keeper!

This was delicious Summer Breeze! Thank you for the great recipe! It made such a wonderful sauce, even though you can't see that by my picture. I used tongs to plate everything, and maybe that is why. I forgot to include the parsley, but that was it! Thanks, again! Coming back to add.. I didn't use link sausage either, but it didn't specify in the ingredients. Thanks again!
