This dip is absolutely delicious! I took it to a Super Bowl party last night. The husbands, intent on the game, just stuffed their faces. But the wives asked around to discover who had made it so they could find out what all was in it! I love the idea of adding pasta and making it a casserole so we can have it frequently. Definitely a keeper!
I have made this before and it is very good. There are never any leftovers. I might even try a little diced jalapeno for a litte more kick!
Incredible! I didn't have hot sausage on hand so added a little bit of red pepper flakes (but not too much, so as to keep it palatable for all tastes). This tastes so good, I cannot WAIT to try it as a pasta casserole, too, as SML Janet did--I bet it would be an awesome dinner party dish!
I have made this dip several times and has been a hit each time. I also added a fat curly pasta and had it for dinner.
I made this for my baby shower and it was a HUGE hit! I didn't use hot sausage, just regular pork sausage (pregnancy heartburn can be severe :)
I also used low fat cream cheese. It was absolutely delicious and everybody wanted the recipe!
