Yummy, this sounds really good! I am going to be a dummy and ask a dumb question... I don't think I've ever noticed "chicken sausage links" in my grocery. They very well could have them and I have just missed them. If you make this, would you post or let me know where you found the links, and if they were a brand name? I am going to look on my next trip to the grocery store and will probably feel dumb for having posted this. They are probably there, big as day, but I've never bought anything like that. This sounds really good though, and I love anything Italian flavored. Thanks for sharing :)

Have a wonderful day!
