    CaribbeanQueen's Note:

    The inspiration for this recipe came from a recipe I found in Bon Appetit. I changed many of the ingredients because I wanted to use ingredients I actually had on hand so I wouldn't have to make a trip to the grocery! The DH and I enjoyed the results.

      I prepared this recipe for PAC Fall '06 and it knocked my socks off! There were so many wonderful flavors going on: the wine, the onions, the sausage, the herbs. I wouldn't add tomato paste, but tiny fresh button mushrooms might be nice. I was not able to thicken it much by reducing, and I might add some cornstarch to thicken a bit so that the sauce can cling to the noodles. *****OUTSTANDING!!*****

      LOVE IT! I made this for my neighbors and even the pickiest of them LOVED it! I was instructed to NOT lose this recipe. It is a little time-consuming to make but well worth it! I made a rue to thicken the sauce a little & didn't use the tomato paste. It has fantastic flavor & smells great cooking! THANKS for sharing!!

      Very good, however I added a small can of tomato paste when I added stewed tomatoes, after wine was reduced and it gave it a much sweeter "Itallian" flavor. Try it!
