    ARathkamp's Note:

    This recipie was inspired by #269690 with alterations to our family's taste. My husband and I made this for some friends while on vacation and it was a huge hit, even with all the children ranging from 8 to 18. I hope everyone enjoys it as much as we do. This is a very popular request for meals at our house.

      This recipe is sooo good & yummy!! My whole family (young kids too!) went back for thirds. Which, btw, is rare in my household! What I did differently was not much, I added an extra can of diced or stewed italian style tomatoes. I also cut the casings off the sausage and I simmered the tomato sauce for 30 min. This is wonderful and everyone wants it again next week :)

      This looked great in the pan and fabulous on the plate! Everyone who tried it loved it. We didn't have diced tomatoes so used a can of sliced ones we had on hand, and similarly tossed in whole olives in place of sliced. Otherwise followed the unusually detailed and well-written instructions. Took longer than advertised but wasn't difficult, and was a pleasure to make and eat. We advise those who come after to be sure you have a big enough pan, and if you start with raw sausage, brown it a bit before trying to slice it. Made for Pick A Chef, April 09.
