Tips from the Pillsbury Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Use either link or bulk Italian sausage in this recipe. Slice link sausage into 1/2-inch pieces before cooking.
  • tip 2
    Sourdough bread gets its tangy flavor and moist crumb from an aged yeast starter. Use sourdough or another firm-textured bread for this dish.
  • tip 3
    For added color, top servings with heated marinara sauce.
