Wowzers! Easy and hearty. Made for our family of four on a cold Colorado winter night in January. We used spicy sausage, and threw in some fresh mushrooms and grated parm cheese on top. Even my husband said, "This is REALLY good!" And both kids ate it, which is like winning the lottery in my house. Love how simple it was, using the jarred sauce. Loads of flavor.

Be careful not to add too much noodles, which is what I did! The noodles can suck up all the liquids. Otherwise, it was a good stew.

Really good and easy too! Hubby and I really enjoyed this. I used hot Italian sausage, mushroom onion marinara and black beans instead of kidney (oops!). Don't think the sugar is necessary really, but this was so good. Will definitely make again.
