I loved this recipe, but made a few quick changes. I used 1.25 lbs sweet italian turkey sausage, a full lb of pasta (cellitini). For the peppers, I added 1 cup bottled roasted red peppers, diced. So, I pretty much doubled the meat and pasta but I kept the cream the same. Sauce was thin but I let the pasta sit for 5 minutes in the sauce and it got thicker. For the peppers, I added 1 cup bottled roasted red peppers, diced.
:) Will make again! Recipe could definitely stretch to 5 or 6 people with the full lb of pasta.

Very delicious meal! I used hot italian sausage, added a clove of garlic and a bit of cream cheese to help thicken, as another review suggested. I popped it into the oven for about 15 minutes and it came out divine. Thanks for the recipe, Marie.

Very good. Doubled the recipe since we have a large family. Thought it could have used a little garlic, so added about 1/2 teaspoon (to the doubled recipe) at the end. The sauce was a little on the thin side, so added a few tablespoons of cream cheese to thicken it up. Thank you, Marie!
