My partner eats pork; I don't. This recipe was a very tasty compromise, and was claimed to be excellent by my picky, but pork loving partner. I followed the recipe exactly, with a few exceptions. I left out the fresh green peppers and instead used a couple of tablespoons of freeze-dried green peppers. Diced canned tomatos were used instead of stewed. Also, I doubled up on the turkey bacon. For sausage, I used Grandessa brand Canjun style chicken Andoville (available at Aldi's stores). This was the key to turning this into an incredible meal. It adds lots of spice at an affordable price (I think around $3 for the package). The spagetti sauce (Grandessa's Portebella Mushroom) was a 26 oz. jar and that seemed the perfect amount (I think 14 oz would not be nearly enough). For a side, I just popped open a can of corn, which turned out to be a perfectly bland companion to this spicy dish (a very complimentary "scoop-in" ingredient that breaks up the flavors). Overall, well worth the cook time and definatly a recipe I'll make again. Thanks AutumnJon!
