    Using cooked organic chicken sausage sliced with onion & garlic powders, organic fire-roasted diced tomatoes, omitted the mushrooms & green pepper & 2 cups cooked brown rice pasta. Served with mozz. & cheddar cheese. Was a quick yummy meal. Thank you, Mary.

    Made this tonight for my very picky husband, he loved it. I used turkey sausage and gluten free pasta. It was amazing.
