My husband, who is the grill master and not much into cooking in the kitchen, put this delicious dinner together tonight as I recover from eye surgery. It is packed with flavor and no one would believe that the sauce is simply from a jar with heavy cream and sausage! Served with a Caesar salad it was a great Sunday night dinner.

I have had this recipe earmarked to cook for awhile and finally did it. I followed the directions mostly except for adding extra garlic and some pepper. I didn't have the sauce the recipe called for so I used Bertolli garlic and olive oil. It tasted amazing and even my picky hubby loved it.....except for the peas. I will make this again for sure.

I am going to be honest I altered the ingredients a little but stayed with the same concept. It was absolutely delicious. If you like a little spice and fennel combine them in the sausage for a fun twist (or just buy seasoned sausage). Make sure to add the Parmesan cheese on individual plates after it's done cooking, it is so important and brings all the ingredients together. All in all an easy and fun recipe with happy smiles around the table.

This was easy to make and not terribly time-consuming. Also, it yields A LOT of food. The three stars is simply for the simple taste. It was good, but nothing spectacular or special. It's a great start for a recipe though; a bit of tweaking and it could be something great.
