"This versatile dish is quick, delicious and budget-friendly. I love to make my own spaghetti sauce. You can make the sauce ahead to save time. My family and I both enjoy this. I hope you do too."

chopped red onion
red bell pepper, chopped
bulk pork sausage
4 (16 ounce) cans
ground black pepper
shredded Italian cheese blend
I used spicy pork sausage instead of mild because that's what I had on hand, but my family loved it like that! If you go spicy, though, be sure to serve it with cole slaw like I did;) Also, I added extra shredded cheese and onion. You can substitute the penne pasta for any type of pasta, really. I will make this versatile recipe again!
Made the dish as stated but did not like the type of sausage it called for with the sauce.
Now that I think of it, I did make a few changes. I thought it just made more sence to use spicy Italian sausage. I used the whole red bell pepper (chopped)because I love it. And I only used 2 cans of tomatos. Next time I will also add some crushed garlic. Very good!
This was a huge hit with my family! Everyone was asking how I made the sauce. My slight variations: I put the peppers and onions into the food processor to make a smoother sauce. I used spicy sausage and I also used much more cheese. Finally, I put the whole pasta mixture in a baking dish, topped with more cheese and baked it at 325f for 20 minutes.
This is delicious! I followed the recipe but I added mushrooms and zucchini to it. Its my way to sneaking veggies into the meal for the kids. They loved it and no one asked me about the slightly different taste because of additions.
I loved it! It was very easy to make, and it didn't take a long time. Ingredients were affordable as well. I have always tried making this dish with my own recipe and others, but it always seemed to taste like spaghetti; this recipe doesn't taste like spaghetti. Happy face lol
Excellent!! I would cut back on salt and pepper next time...
Delicious! I made this recipe as printed, but used spicy Italian sausage, and a bit more cheese. Crazy easy, and tastes like you have been cooking all day.

Pile it into a tomato half, load it into a wrap, or spread it on bread. Chicken salad does it all.
Broccoli salad makes a great side dish or a light main dish on a warm night.
