Rated 2 out of 5 by from Too sweet This was not a favorite. The sauce was just too sweet to be a savory dish.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from The sauce was too sweet The combination of the jam and cream cheese made the sauce sweet. Even with the spicy sausage there was something missing. Probably won't make again.
