Somewhere between a soup and a stew, this comforting winter dish becomes pleasantly thick from mashing the potatoes into the broth just before serving.

This was delicious and a huge hit with adults and kids alike. Perfect weeknight cold weather meal. Quick and easy. Made the following modifications: 2 potatoes, and might actually try 3 next time. Added a few shakes of crushed red pepper when cooking the sausage. Used 2lbs. of sausage. Used baby kale instead of flat parsley. Used 6 cups of chicken broth and 3 tbs of cream.
I made this tonight with no sherry and no fennel bulb (couldn't find it). I added 1/2 cup of rice because my husband wouldn't eat it without it. I added a little salt and pepper after I served myself and it was so delicious! It had a very thick stew like consistency. Don't forget the sun-dried tomatoes, lemon zest and heavy cream. I added some fresh spinach to the pot, only zest one small lemon (was more than enough) and served it with a side of garlic bread. I also drained the fat off of the sausage as well. Great recipe.
I've made this four times. Tried both hot and sweet sausage. Key is to use a really good, highly flavored sausage and this recipe is fantastic. I also tend to use a whole pound rather than 3/4 lb.
GREAT Weeknight dinner! There aren't a lot of ingredients so I think it makes a difference to start with good sausage for flavor. I did use hard cider instead of sherry (what I had around), left out the heavy cream (lactose-intolerance) and didn't mash it (too much work for Tuesday night). Lemon zest and sun-dried tomatoes were great additions! Will make again!
