"Yum! I used hot chicken sausage and added some feta cheese, but otherwise stuck to the recipe. For the pasta, I made whole grain penne, and I thought the feta really added something to the dish. It came together pretty quickly and I would definitely make it again. Although for my family, I would probably stick to a milder sausage rather than the hot I used for my husband and myself tonight. I would just add a little crushed red pepper to our portions!"

"Fantastic, quick & easy - but for us I reduced the pasta to 2 cups. Served w/the ever present salad."
