I agree that draining the meat/veggie liquid throws away lots of flavor. Fry/brown the meat first & drain, then sauté the veggies in some of the meat grease (cummon, a little fat isn't going to kill you - the pasta is worse for your health). And, yes, with all those fresh veggies, why canned mushrooms? Buy a 4 oz box of fresh (portabella would be awesome) mushrooms - more added flavor. Will be using spicy italian turkey sausage instead of pork.

Uhhh, no. First of all, I would fry the meat then remove it to drain, then sautee the vegetables in some of the fat. That seems like a lot of tomato paste. But, I'd remove the vegetables and fry the tomato past until it turns a deep red and deglaze with a little dry red wine-optional. then add everything back in. Canned mushrooms? Come on, how hard is it to slice up a few mushrooms!? And they taste better too.

You can also substitute Turkey Italian Sausage, available in most stores. Less fat and then let it sit overnight and remove remaining fat.

Matthew, probably italian sausage your choice it has hot peppers so I would go mild, also good advise from crockboston!

There are all kinds of "pork sausage". I wish they were more specific - plain ground pork, Italian sausage (mild), Italian sausage (spicy), pork sausage with sage, breakfast sausage (mild or hot)? I understand that you can use anything you want, but I'd like to not ruin a recipe by putting in breakfast sausage (which I have on hand already in the freezer) when the recipe calls for a whole different kind of sausage.

do the meat & veggies separately or better yet, leave the fat in the sauce, if you want low fat, skim it off after is solidifies the next day.

I may try this recipe. I like the idea of all the vegetables and make a similar sauce. I don't care for basil and cannot have the hot pepper or pepperoni but don't think that will make a substantial difference.
