This was a fantastic meal with a few minor adjustments. I look at recipes as guidelines...not the rules! Instead of 2 red peppers, I used 1 green and 1 red bell pepper and added approx. 2oz of chopped Pancetta for more of an Italian flare. I love GARLIC!! We used 4 garlic cloves. Instead of cooking wine, I substitued 1 cup of Pinot Grigio wine. Lastly, I used approx. 1/2 cup freshley shredded Parmesan and topped with fresh basil and additional parmesan cheese. I will definitely be making this again...SOON!!

This was ok. It was quick and easy. Iwould not make it again it was on the bland side.

Delicious! I made it with 3 green bell peppers, 3 cloves of garlic, and 3 links of chicken sausages. I used one onion and 16 oz of linquine and it was perfect!

Great and easy lunch idea! So simple to throw together! I used breakfast sausage links and per other suggestions, I too added a variety of colored peppers and 1/2 cup fresh mushrooms. I couldn't belive that a few ingrediants would turn out so tasty. It doesn't make a lot and I probally wouldn't serve to company but I WILL be making this one again! I MIGHT add a dash of red pepper flakes for some heat but is good as is. Thanks Jackie!

This is a fantastic base. I did a lot of tweaking though. I prefer a heartier pasta with this kind of sauce. I used tortellini. Gemilli or bowties would work great too. I added salt, pepper, garlic powder, red pepper flakes and lots of Italian Seasoning. I also added baby bella mushrooms, used one red and one green pepper and romano instead or parm cheese. So good!!

Tasty recipe. I did add a few of my own modifications. Instead of sweet italian sausage, I used jalopeno sausage. Used different color peppers. Sauted the veggies first in 1 tbsp of olive oil and sesame oil. Added 1 lb of sauted shrimp when simmering. To thicken sauce, I added 1 tsp of flour at the end. Had a spicy, smokey, and nutty flavor. My husband and I enjoyed it. I would make this recipe again.

Good, basic, uncomplicated recipe. Easy to prepare. Appreciated there was no heavy-handed seasoning. I left the sausage in its casing, cutting it into small sections. Also used red wine rather than white as a personal preference. It would be difficult to mess this up. Nothing here not to like.

My whole family of eight loved this recipe!!!! It is certainly a keeper! Many people have suggested a ton of changes, but my family liked it just the way it was. I might try experimenting with the recipe for the fun of it though.
