Italian Sausage, Peppers and Pasta

READY IN: 2hrs 10mins
Recipe by Michelle Figueroa

Although the sauce used is a jarred sauce the outcome is a Chunky, robust flavored pasta sauce, that is slow cooked for that unique homemade taste. My husband got this recipe from an Italian co-worker.

This will be a repeat at my house! The kids always want pasta and this is a nice way to change it up for my husband and I. I couldn't find the mentioned brand of jarred sauce, so went with a Newman's Own variety--worked fine. Also used only red peppers-next time I'll add yellow and green for color. Also, 1/2 t of red pepper flakes was plenty for us.
