This recipe is quick and easy, two of my favorite things:) My family doesn't care for sausage so I used 1/2 pound of ground beef instead.

This really is simple and easy to make - perfect for 2 people. I don't like sausage and I make my own bread crumbs (gotta use that stale bread for something) so I use 1/2 pound of ground beef and add 1/4 teaspoon of Italian seasoning. Thanks for posting this David!

These were nice and easy and made a great quick dinner. I only had beef so I used that, but next time I'm going to try with the sausage and add some garlic and a few fresh herbs.
