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!
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.
