"We prefer our sausage tender, so I browned them, then simmered them in the sauce all afternoon. VERY GOOD!"

"Neither my husband and I cared for the turkey sausage links; they just didn't have the right texture or flavor as pork sausage, so made again with sausage we liked. Was a great dish to come home to."
