I liked this recipe very much, I rated it as "has potential" simply because I would change the recipe if I were to make it again. I used minced garlic in place of whole cloves and I used all red bell peppers(cheaper). Next time would substitute rosemary for the oregano...just a personal preference. The peppers did take a little longer than 15 minutes, the potatoes burned ever so slightly, and the sausage turned out a little dry. Will make again and serve to company with adjustments.
