This recipe makes a very hearty and zesty Italian pasta sauce. It makes a nice change from a regular bolognese. You can adjust the amount of seasoning to taste.
Wow, this was great, but I did make the following changes. I made a pound of penne, I used only sweet italian sausage (though I think it would be great with the combo too). I used an entire onion. The sun-dried tomatoes that I used said packed with olive oil and HERBS as well as my diced canned tomatoes so I did not need to add any additional italian herbs. I drained most of the liquid out of the tomatoes (recipes doesn't indicate either way) and I skipped the cherry tomatoes. Because I skipped the cherry tomatoes I cut back a bit on the cream so the sauce wouldn't be too thin. I think next time I will simmer the sauce a little longer before adding the cream because my husband felt the sun-dried tomatoes were still a little firm. I will definitely make this one again. - 16 Feb 2008 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
I love this recipe! I made it again tonight and my guests gave it a 10/10. I used mild Italian sausage and added cajun seasoning. Delicious! - 05 Dec 2007 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
This was absolutely delicious - my husband loved it too. Next time I'll use 2/3 or half as much sausage. I also mixed in the cherry tomatoes while the pan was still simmering so they could soften. - 26 Mar 2010 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
