  • Incredible!
    This was soooo good! I didn't have a can of the diced tomates with chilies, so used two cans of petite diced tomatoes. Can't wait to try it with the chilies.

  • Very Good
    Didn't have the correct diced tomatoes and Rotel. Substituted italian style diced tomatoes and a 'can' of medium Pace chunky salsa. The salsa added a nice zip to the dish. Will definitely make again! - 3/6/12

  • My husband and I both thought this was amazing!! To cut back on a few calories I only used 4 sausage links and I used Barilla Plus Rotini (7 oz), and served a small salad with dinner. You could even leave out the sausage for a nice side dish. Definite keeper, thanks!! - 10/5/08
