"This came out really greasy. That was pretty unappealing."

"I made this for dinner and it got rave reviews (even from the kids who hate peppers and onions). I used a mixture of hot and mild turkey sausages and used 2 green peppers (I didn't have a red one) and instead of tomato sauce, used some leftover canned spaghetti sauce. Turned out great, was super easy and warmed us on a chilly day. Looking forward to making this again."

"We added a bit of soy sauce and crushed red peppers...It was spicy and great! Served it on some toasted hoagie rolls. Loved it so much that I we are planning on putting it on our Super Bowl Menu!"

"When doubling this use a 28 oz can of tomato puree and 1 cup of water instead of an 8 oz can of tomato sauce. Made a difference."

"What a great sandwich! I have doubled the recipe and served it the 2nd time around with noodles. Makes a great sauce. I use the Johnsonville Sweet Ital. Sausage."
