Raffy's Turkey Sausage and Chestnut Stuffing

My Aunt Raffy is my biggest cooking influence. One of thing I love about her is how she blends flavors from different cultures, like her turkey sausage with chestnut stuffing. It's her Italian accented version of an American classic, and it's pretty hard to resist!
