Not even close to dinner time yet and I'm starving! Great!

Just kidding. Well, sort of. I mean... I am hungry.

This recipe looks good. Thank you for sharing, Larry.

It's Italian style sausage made with chicken.

It's in my supermarket and better versions available from the butcher down the block.

thanks, larry, this looks great, and a healthy version of sketti and meataballs, too.

c&p'd.

i may leave out or reduce the amount of cloves. i find them very strong, and much like rosemary, i can taste them through just about any dish if more than a tiny bit is added.

Yes, 6 whole cloves struck me as way too much also. They are so strong ... even one would leave a definite note.

I'd leave them out entirely, personally.

And I'd use fresh onion and tomato paste

The rest looks good!
