EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

A 1/2 pound of pork sausage can be used instead of the Italian sausage if it's more readily available. No fresh garlic? Use 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder or 1/2 teaspoon instant minced garlic instead.

For a meal in a snap, serve with purchased garlic bread and a buy-in-the-bag Caesar salad mix. A slice of store-bought cheesecake is the perfect dessert.
