"This was delicious! While the stew was simmering I tasted it and realized I would need more seasoning so I added a tablespoon of Italian seasoning. This was even better the second day."

"I only used 1 lb of Italian sausage, and it was plenty. Even though I couldn't find italian-seasoned tomato sauce, I did find seasoned diced tomatoes. Great taste - will definitely make again."

"Everyone loves it at my house! I make it about once every two months and I always get rad complements. I do suggest that if you can't get Italian seasoned tomato sauce that you just add about a teaspoon of Italian seasoning instead. But it is delicious!"

"This stew is really more of a soup, but still nonetheless good. I boiled 2 cups dry pasta to give it a bit more bite. I couldn't find Italian-seasoned tomato sauce, so I just used plain. I'd add a bit of spices next time.
