    Very delicious! It tastes almost exactly like my recipe. I used hot and sweet sausage like I always do. I never cooked with Fennel Root before so I was expecting it to taste like fennel seasoning. Therefore, I didn't use the whole bulb b/c I don't really care for fennel. WOW! I wish I had used the whole bulb. It was actually different tasting from what I expected (a bit on the sweet side and more like an onion) and it was delicious! Instead of canned tomatoes, I used a fresh tomato and cut it up in cubes. My recipe doesn't call for pasta so this was a nice addition (who would have thought). I also wish I had used more fresh basil on top. It gave it such a nice flavor. Sitting here at my desk eating the leftovers. My boss walked by and said, "Yum, something smells really good." I think I'll be making my sausage and peppers this way from now on.
