I wasn't sure how it would turn out, however, it turned to be a total success!
Hot or mild Italian sausages can be used.
This dish could be served over potatoes or pasta instead of rice.
This is a great weeknight meal for a family or could be served for a dinner party with crusty Calabrese bread and a hearty glass of red wine.
