Personal Notes:
This recipe came from Uncle Dick. I tried duplicating it for years, then finally got smart enough to ask for the recipe. You can adjust most anything according to taste. I use mild sausage, but hot would be awesome too. The original recipe calls for draining off all the sausage fat, then adding oil. I leave a couple spoons of sausage fat in pan instead for the extra flavor. I use a 14 ounce can, but only put in half the tomatoes and all the juice.
