    This recipe was featured on Giada De Laurentiis' "Everyday Italian". It comes from her Aunt Raffy, who created it when she wanted a stuffing that melded both Italian and American styles.

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
    2. 2
      Core the apples and dice them into 1-inch cubes. Dice the onion into 1/2-inch cubes.
    3. 3
      Over medium low heat, sauté the apples and onion in 1 tablespoon of the olive oil melted together with the unsalted butter. Cook for 10 minutes, until softened. Add the wine, cranberries, salt, and pepper, and let simmer for 5 minutes. Remove from heat and allow to cool; set aside.
    4. 4
      Over medium high heat in a large pan, heat the remaining tablespoon olive oil and add the turkey sausage removed from the casings. Cook until browned well, breaking the pieces up with a wooden spatula or spoon, about 8 to 10 minutes.
    5. 5
      In a large bowl combine the sautéed fruit/onion mixture, cooked sausage, chestnuts (whole or chopped), cornbread, and red pepper flakes (if using). Toss gently but well. Add the chicken broth and 3/4 cup of the Parmesan and toss again (may add another 1/2 cup broth if you feel the stuffing is too dry).
    6. 6
      Oil a large casserole dish (8.5 x 8.5 inch) with olive oil or pan spray, then pour stuffing into dish. Be gentle when spreading it in the pan, you don't want to smash the bread cubes.
    7. 7
      Sprinkle over the remaining Parmesan, and dot with the butter pieces.
    8. 8
      Bake in 400 degree F oven on middle rack for 45 minutes to 1 hour, until the top is golden brown.

      I made this for our family Thanksgiving in honor of my late grandmother who used to always bring the sausage stuffing. I left out the chestnuts just because of time and shopping. Tremendous!
