This is 100% KICK BUTT AWESOME!! I was debating between this and another recipe, chose this one.... and SO glad I did! Unfortunately, I didn't have any sun-blushed tomatoes, so I used some home oven-dried ones that I reconstituted in the microwave. Added the tomato water with the tomatoes. EXCELLENT!!... (and don't skip the step of roasting the garlic, it adds so much dimension to this dish!!

I made this dish a few days ago. I followed the recipe almost exactly (maybe added a little extra garlic - I tend to). My girlfriend and I loved this dish, and I'm making it again tonight for some friends. I used grocery-shelf ingredients (red cooking wine, sausage, sun-blushed tomatoes from a jar, etc.), and it turned out wonderfully. Very highly recommended!

This was a nice change of pace from Italian sausage and tomato sauce. I wasn't sure what a "sun blushed tomato" was so I used three roma tomatoes diced. I liked it more than my husband, but since I'm the poster, hee hee, I gladly give this five stars.

Sticking to this recipe brings out the best result. Have cooked variations in the past using just a few ingrediants however the addition of red wine adds another layer to this dish. The fragrant Chorizo if bought from a good deli will really be the boss on the plate. Sensational.

I am not going to rate this, since I had to make quite a few changes, but what I did was delicious. First of all I used the ground chorizo, since it was what I had. I did not have garlic cloves, so I used garlic powder. I used a can of undrained diced tomatoes and in place of the red wine, I used beef broth. It was very good having made these changes, even my 2 yo really liked it. I will make it again. Maybe I will be able to make it the way it is written!

This is rich, deep and delish. I sliced sweet onions thinly in half circles. Roasted garlic is a must! For the tomatoes I used Oven-Dried Herbed Tomatoes. Thanks!!!

Wooo is this spicy! I didn't have fresh tomatoes on hand so I used a can of drained diced tomatoes and that worked out just fine. Very good and we will be making it again.

This was really good but a little too spicy for me. When I make this again I think I might try leaving out the red pepper flakes.
