This turned out to be a bit on the bland side. I added several home grown spices to flavor it a bit more. Family enjoyed it.

As soon as I saw how this was turning out I had to start modifying it. This recipe needed lots of work.....

I tweeked the recipe. Instead of a can of stewed tomatoes, I used tomatoes w/ green chilies,added a small onion,garlic powder, celery and mushrooms. A touch of sea salt. Delcious.

Very easy recipe to make, a little on the bland side. Added some chopped onion and garlic sauted to it and improved the taste. Used Hunts "Diced Tomatoes" and made the process even faster. Great with some crusty sourdough bread.

I thoughgt this was very bland--and I even used twice as much sausage as the recipe called for.
