This was good but I did change it up a bit. I used a pound of hamburger and a half a pound of hot sausage. I used crushed tomatoes instead of diced. I also used wagon wheels as that is what I had on hand. I had to add 28 ounces of tomatoes and two cups of broth. I also used mozz cheese instead of parm. We liked this and I liked that it was a one pot meal.

I made this last night. We all ate it and enjoyed it as an ulternate to spegetti. But I need to try it again with the right ingredients. I didn't have zucchini so I used a mix of broccoli, califlower, and carrots. I also added some ricatta cheese in with the 1/2 cup of parmesan because I had it left over. I will make this again.
