MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 7, 2014

"This dish only calls for 1 lb of sausage, and I used a 20-oz package. For hearty eaters, this turned out to only be enough for 3 people, instead of 6 servings. I had expected to have enough leftovers for a 2nd night. One member of my family would've liked more green pepper and more onion. Step #1 took twice as long to do even with frequent stirring--about 10 minutes. Step #2 also took longer, on account of the whole-grain pasta not being cooked within 10-15 minutes; I'd either pre-cook the pasta and add it near the end or allow more cooking time."
