This recipe I planned on trying out and ended up taking my daughter to get her 2 year pictures taken instead. So, leaving the boys at home and my hubs in charge of supper, I asked if he still wanted to make what I had planned. He agreed, so this is kind of his post... I mean, notice the picture - do I ever take the time to make it look so wonderful and appetizing, adding the extra spices to the top? :) He did great! He and my sons thought that this was a yummy supper and easy to throw together. Josh recommends using half of the oil when you sautee the garlic and peppers, if you use the same pan that you used to cook up the sausage links like he did. Other then that, it was a great meal!
