Greek cooks absolutely DO use both sun dried tomatoes and sausage. So sorry you were subjected to such nastiness, Terri. Thanks for posting.

I'm sorry,adding feta to anything does not make it Greek. Greeks do not use sun dried tomatoes in anything. Greek cooks would never use sausage let alone turkey sausage. Ever. Lenon is never ever an option. It is a necessity. Please call this what it is. Pasta and sausage.
