An old standby that is quick and easy to prepare and makes the most delicious sauce to serve over noodles or spaghetti. I've had this recipe for years and made several changes to the original.

I have made this twice and love it, only change I made was to add 1 can tomato paste instead of thicking. freezes well also. thanks for a great recipe.

I wanted to find a good recipe for sausage & peppers to make for New Year's Day. I found it in yours! I used both hot and sweet Italian sausage and mixed them. Instead of slicing the green pepper, I cut it in wide strips. The next time, I will use 2 green peppers instead of 1. This is definetly an old standby recipe that I was looking for. Thank you for posting it!

This is nice dish, I had to reduce the chili significantly because of the kids and it still seemed a bit much. We did enjoy this dish, though it was really runny and I needed to let the extra liquid boil off... I didn't want to add any cornstarch to muck up the nice color. Thanks for sharing!
