So my wife isn't a fan of fennel, which basically eliminates almost all Italian sausage recipes from my kitchen. I tried making an Italian sausage recipe leaving out the fennel and it just tasted weird. Any suggestions on a good bulk sausage recipe without fennel that would go well with tomato based pasta dishes? Even a name of a particular sausage would be helpful so I could research recipes on my own.. I just don't even know what to look for. thanks all!
