I had farro on hand after finding it at Aldi a few weeks back. Now that I know I can make THIS I'll be buying it more often. I followed all ingredients and directions except for two things: omitting the butter since I had enough grease from the cooked sausage and adding the garlic near the end of the 5-6 minutes for the apples/onions (I was afraid it would burn and turn bitter). This is rustic and delicious and the perfect hearty dish for a cold winter's night in Michigan! Read More

This was yummy! I cooked the onions and the sausage together instead of separately. Then I added the diced apples. After a bit I added the garlic. My faro took longer because it wasn't quick cooking faro it was pearled faro. I added the faro when it was almost done to the sausage onion and apple mixture and simmered for about 10 minutes. Perfect! Read More

I used a cup of farro cooked in 2 1/2 cups water since I didn’t have the Trader Joe’s type called for in recipe. This recipe is delicious and a hit with both me and my husband! I will definitely make it again. Read More

Tried this tonight and loved it! I used the apples I had on hand which were not granny smith. I also added a sweet potato. We will be making this again. I think we might go lighter on the sausage maybe only half the package. Read More

This was delicious and very easy to make! I only made small changes as recommended by others. First I did not use butter to cook the apples onion and garlic in; the grease reserve was enough to prevent sticking. Also I added spinach at the end and allowed it to wilt before serving. Because there are only two of us I did halve the recipe and it was plenty. We will absolutely be making this again and I have already shared it with others. Read More
