Great recipe. Spicy or not to your liking. Translated from french by myself

"This was one a friend pointed out, and I made it expecting it to be kinda bland. However, I found it surprisingly good, and *super* fast. I did add a half shake of both basil and parsley, and I smidgen of garlic powder, not enough of any of it to measure. I also finished the last 2 minutes of my noodles in the pan with the meat while there was still juice left from the bullion, all the flavors mixed quite well."

Wow, this was pretty good. Flavorful and a very good dish for a beginner to make. Less dishwashing than I thought afterwards.

I used shallots, celery, fresh garlic and carrots sliced julienne style. This gave dish more flavor. Instead of loose sausage I used turkey sausage and chicken breast. It was very good.
