Pasta Marinara with Italian Red Wine & Cheese Sausage
Huge yummy servings!. Great dish, full of flavor! I loved all the veggies! The serving size is also incredibly generous! The only thing I would change is the eggplant. It was awfully chewy, but it would be easy enough to just take it out and add extra of the other veggies. I loved the red wine and cheese sausage, but I may try the recipe with Johnsonville's chicken sausage next time for an healthier option. This will definitely be on my make again list. — Amy
