POLISH SAUSAGE & PASTA

By Ellen Bales Starwriter


This was found under the heading of salads and at first I thought it was served cold, but it is indeed a hot salad. The recipe includes one of my least favorite veggies, mushrooms, and I will omit them when I make this dish. However, I've left them in the recipe for all you people who don't share my mushroom aversion.
