Sausage sandwiches were good but not much difference than plain sausages with sauteed peppers and onions. With so many other recipes, I don't think I'll keep this one.

Made it using sweet italian sausages and regular red bell peppers. Husband and I thought it was just okay. Didn’t feel I will do this anytime soon again.

Excellent sauce. I used hot sausage. After browning the sausage, in the same pan, I sauteed two medium onions and one green pepper. I set aside the onions/peppers. Made the sauce, added the sausage and arranged the onions/pepper on top to simmer. Very good taste!

This is hands down one of our favorite meals. We like to have it with roasted asparagus drizzled with balsamic.

Delicious! I used hot Italian sausage to add some heat. Nice sweet, savory combo. Delicious with the toasted ravioli. Quick and easy too.
