Reviews for Pizza Parlor Pasta
"I add mushrooms to cook in with the sausage & onion, I leave out the green pepper. I typically add canadian bacon & pepperoni as well. This recipe freezes well, so I freeze the leftovers into single serving sizes for lunches."
"Love this recipe. Tweaked it alittle by adding a few more vegetables to the sauce (fresh tomatoes and mushrooms), and added a little bacon that I had on hand. So quick and easy too."
"Nice small recipe to make, freeze and take in our motorhome."
