Expert Tips

Use either link or bulk Italian sausage in this recipe. Slice link sausage into 1/2-inch pieces before cooking.

Sourdough bread gets its tangy flavor and moist crumb from an aged yeast starter. Use sourdough or another firm-textured bread for this dish.

For added color, top servings with heated marinara sauce.
