I’m sure you’re probably wondering why I decided to use sausage and not chicken.  Well, I love Chicken Marsala but wanted to try something different. It’s not a recipe that you come across every day. The rosemary, sausage and marsala wine will have your taste buds going crazy and will become a top request by your family and even the little ones. My nieces love it!

If you’re not really feeling the sausage, you can totally make this dish vegetarian. However, I would recommend adding more mushrooms. It may seem like a lot but remember, mushrooms cook down quite a bit. Adding in the extra mushrooms will give this dish a meaty feel, but without the meat.
