I created this sausage and pepper dish after I enjoyed similar at an Italian restaurant. My young son loves it even though it is a little spicy. -Teresa Puszkar of Colorado Springs, Colorado

"I omitted the canned tomatoes and replaced with a jar of spaghetti sauce. I also added 1 t crushed red pepper. Delicious!"

"I love this dinner. It's cheap, fast, and delicious. I only use half the sausage which is enough for our family of 5. Then, I use the leftover sausage to make Zuppa di Fagioli (search for it on here) or add to sauce for spaghetti."
