I wasn't sure about the spicy sausage, with my kids but they loved it. I did change the cheese to our personal favorite blend "Mexican". The sausage added a nice flavor to the dish. Definitel...

Another excellent recipe by Johnsonville. I've become a big fan of their product. It is always so tasty! I used the cheesy sausages (3 links) and sautéed them a bit before adding to the pasta...
