    Lainey6605's Note:

    This is a simple but delicious dinner my family loves. I serve it with crusty Italian bread or garlic bread and a salad. Feel free to use hot or sweet Italian sausage.

      I used a jar of marinara sauce and mild italian sausage and a mix of fusilli and shell pasta. After the sausages were cooked, I drained the pan. I used 2 red bell pepper. It's a great dish, very easy to do. Thanks Lainey :) Made for the Best of 2011 tag game

      This was really good and easy to make. I did change it up a bit because of what I had on hand. I used ground mild italian sausage and only used red peppers. I used two jars of marinara sauce. This makes a lot. Plenty for leftovers the next day.

      As simple as this is to prepare, it really is quite tasty. The peppers give it a nice "kick", too. I know I will make this again. Thanks, Lainey6605. Made for ZWT7, Mischief Makers team.
