I have made this several times for guest's of mine, and they have all loved it. It's a great Italian dish that doesn't require a lot of work.

This was a big hit in my house. I read other suggestions and added more Marsala wine frozen peppers and onions but also used 2 cans of chopped tomatoes. Will make again but next time I'll spice it up a little more. Read More

Not bad but the timing and amounts require a few adjustments to make this dish really good. The tomatoes should be added before the sausage as cooked through...this way the flavour of the sausage will permeate the sauce while cooking through. The addition of only one tbsp of Marsala wine which pairs beautifully with lots of garlic is really not enough...try more...of both. Read More

This was great. The only difference was that I used 1 tablespoon of cabernet wine instead of the marsala (since I didn't have it on hand), and my husband raved over it. He said the smell was driving him crazy. I also used penne pasta instead of farfalle, but I will DEFINITELY make this again. Thanks! Read More

I've made this several times and it is delicious. I've made a few changes. I use sweet italian turkey sausage and take it out of the casing and brown it with the other veggies. I also add more Marsala wine. Probably 1/4 to 1/2 cup depending on your taste. (What's the use of cooking with wine if you don't put some wine in it). I've taken this to work and everyone loved it. Great recipe-THANKS Read More

This dish was very good however there really was no sauce. I suggest reducing the pasta to 1/2 lb or doubling the tomatoes. I added more marsala wine than the recipe called for and it gave the sausage a great flavor. My 15 month old and husband loved it. Unfortunately my 3-1/2 year old didn't really care for it. Thank you for sharing I think with just a little less pasta this would have been a 5 star meal!! Read More

This was a great meal. I did add more garlic and a lot more marsala to give it a little sauce to coat the pasta. I wanted it a little more sweet so I did add a little touch of sugar. Instead of slicing the italian sausage I removed the casings and crumbled instead. This was a great light and filling meal and I plan to make again! Thanks for the recipe! UPDATE I have made this again and it is just a great light meal! I do add like I said above a lot more marsala. Probably a whole cup to get a nice sauce. I sliced the sausages this time instead of crumbling and I like it both ways. This can certainly be subbed for any type of sausage as well and still be delish. I also do before adding in the marsala sear the veggies and sausage real well first to get a nice brown on them. It gives it so much more flavor! Serve this with some nice crusty bread for sopping and some wine and you have a nice italian meal! Thanks again for the recipe! Read More
