  1. A great meal for traveling. Started cooking it at home - 2 hours on low- then transferred to emergency rehearsal to finish cooking and be ready before our 2-show day. Cooked for 3 hours on high once at work- it cooked too long, but was still very edible. Fed 10 people generously. I used 1 lb. good sausage, hot, and what cheese I had on hand. I'll use again. Thanks, Jan.
  2. I made this for a school brunch, and got rave reviews! It was super easy and delicious! I'm also impressed with the calories, because we got way more than 12 servings out of this. Thanks for sharing! I will make this again.
  3. This was good, and a great edition to our Christmas traditions, but we found it a little bland. I will DEFINITELY make it again but next time will use a spicy/hot sausage or chorizo so it has more kick to it. That said, my husband has a more tame palate and he loves this version.


I am originally from Minneapolis, Minnesota and moved to Ohio in 1978. It was quite a culture shock going from the city to living next to the Amish. I spend most of my time cooking, cleaning and caring for my four kids. I have abandoned cookbooks and now cook from favorite, wilted recipe pages and the internet. I fell in love with my Italian family recipes (Scavo, Rotella, Scalzo, Micelli, Grande, Gigliotti) and my Mom's homecooked meals.
