"Found this recipe by googling sausage, pasta, and marinara. I had a package of turkey kielbasa that I needed to use up. I sliced it into coins, browned on both sides, drained, set aside. Then to the pan I added some thin sliced celery & carrots, and chopped broccoli in with the onions, peppers, garlic. Added some grated Parmesan cheese along with the feta. Served with crusty garlic bread. Fantastic meal! Hubby remarked how awesome it was and had seconds. I'm thrilled because we have leftovers for tomorrow night when I need to be making a dish to take to work for a party the next day. Thanks for this easy, go-to pasta dish that can be adjusted so easily! :-)"
