I looked everywhere for the smoked rope sausage. No luck, called johnsonville, and learned it's not been sold in this area. Improvised and used the cheddar brotwurst links, figuring since there was already cheddar in the casserole it would go well. Bottom line is 3 out of 4 in my family preferred the casserole without it. I made a few minor changes to recipe. It calls for water to simmer in the sauce mixture- I wanted to impart more flavor so I used beef broth. Also ended up adding about 2-3 teaspoons of tomato paste. By the way, says it makes 4 servings- with 1 lb of pasta plus all the veggies and sausage- really makes 8.
