“There are many different versions of scarpariello; some, like this one, call for sausages, making this dish a hearty mainstay in our household. The recipe calls for fully cooked italian-flavored chicken sausage but I often have a hard time finding this at my local grocery store, so I typically use italian-flavored turkey sausage. Just remember to cook it before adding it in. I found this recipe in a family circle cookbook.”
