This recipe is OUTSTANDING! I make minor changes to it and it comes out delicious everytime. I use one 15oz can of diced tomatoes (w/Basil Oregano Garlic flavoring) in place of the Roma tomatoes I use Romano cheese in place of the Parmesan and I use a total of 1/4 cup of oil instead of the 1/2 cup. I love it with the turkey sausage but have also made it with grilled chicken. This is now my favorite recipe!!!!
my husband made this for us tonight and it was great! he made a few modifications. he added mushrooms, and some fat free cream cheese and 1% milk to make it more saucy. tasted like a wonderful cream sauce but with much less fat!
This is a great recipe and is easy to tweak according to your likes/dislikes. I also use one can of diced tomatoes (if I don't have any fresh) and I don't add green pepper. I also don't add as much parmesan cheese as it calls for. I've used the farfelle pasta but my favorite to use with it is campanelle. This recipe is a favorite of my husbands. And mine!
We have a new favorite! If youre looking for a sauage/pasta dish that isn't all smothered in tomato sauce then this is for you! The boullion and tomatoes make such a light refreshing sauce that really brings out the other flavors! For best results I wouldn't advise subbing dried basil for fresh (flavor goes down to 3-4 stars w/dried). Great presentation/colors too. Perfect for company! Thanks!!!
What a wonderful dish! I presented it in a cooking class at church and received rave reviews. This recipe makes 7 cups and freezes well for the next go 'round. My modifications: bulk turkey Italian sausage canned diced tomatoes with basil & garlic zucchini and summer squash broccoli cauliflower & carrot mix can of mushroom pieces 1/4 c olive oil green & red bell peppers and an Italian cheese blend w/ Parmesan Asiago Mozzarella and Provolone. This dish was 'tha bomb'!!
This was delicious with just the right amount of spiciness. I was a little skeptical about the addition of bouillon granules but they blended in nicely and really enhanced the flavor. I followed the recipe exactly although it's one of those that could be tweaked to one's tastes. I might try a variation on it using some different or additional vegetables or perhaps chicken instead of sausage. Having said that both my husband and I loved it as is. Thanks for the recipe. I'll definitely be making it again!
I made this recipe scaled down to 4. I took the sausage out of the casing before cooking it added a small amount of Maderia wine 1 small diced jalapeno pepper and about 10 fennel seeds. My husband liked it which is a true test. I definately will make it again.
We loved this. I kind of doubled it used 2 lbs of penne and 2 lbs of hot turkey sausage because my husband has a tendancy to pick out the good stuff from the leftovers. Also didn't have any fresh tomatoes on hand so used 3 14 oz can of diced romas. Waiting for those garden tomatoes to ripen; and then look out!!! This is going to taste even better. Used fresh yellow squash and whole basil leaves straight out of the garden and even with the canned tomotoes was absolutely delicious. Can't wait to make it again with the garden tomatoes.
This recipe surprised me with how tasty it was. I was just looking for a way to use up the squash from my garden! I had to use canned tomatoes since my garden is only offering green maters right now. I also left out the green pepper since I don't like it. I used much less olive oil and instead used the juice from the canned tomatoes when I needed more liquid. I can't have cheese right now (and how I love fresh parmesan!) but I don't think the dish suffered at all without it. Don't worry I got my fat grams by using full-on hot Italian PORK sausage. I highly recommend using fresh basil. Fabulous taste and easy to make with a nice zing - a keeper!
