We love cooking once, eating twice. This is such a recipe. There is not a load of Thermomix usage in this on the face of it, but seriously, the Thermomix makes short work of everything we use it for, plus of course there is the whole Marinara Sauce which is entirely essential as part of this recipe.
My son who lived in Italy for two years, was very happy with it. The flavours reminded him of his Italian home...well done mum!
With or without a salad, this is easy, family comfort food. Your Italian sausage quality will make a huge difference in the overall flavour..so be aware of getting a sausage you already know and love.
