One day when I was preparing Italian sausages, I decided to do something different. After browning them, I put the sausages in a pot and added other ingredients, ending up with this stew that my husband and I like very much. We have four grown children and will soon celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary!

"I was skeptical about this recipe. #1 it was a made up recipe and then the worcestershire and ketchup scared me, so i added some ketchup and worcestershire in a small bowl of the stew first and well this is the first review I believe I have ever entered. I Love it. I just happened to make irish soda bread also and it was really really good with the stew. My compliments to the Chef :D"

I served it with warm soft italian bread."

"I made this using sweet italian turkey sausage links. My husband liked it just the way it is. It was a bit on the spicy side for me but that is just a personal preference, so I just added a few tsps of sugar to my helping and walaa perfection! My son added a bit of sugar and some shredded fresh parmesan on top. He said it was perfection too! Thanks for a great recipe!

I served it with warm soft italian bread. YUM!"

"This stew is a nice basic simple-to-make stew with a ton of flavor, but the sausage really makes it something special. I substituted the herbs with 3 tsp of italian seasoning. 3 carrots, 3 celery, 1 large onion."
