Very easy and delicious! I used chicken sausages and served with spaghetti. We enjoyed it with salad and red wine and made for a very tasty meal.

This is a great recipe. You can add so many twist to this to fit your family's tastes. I put 2 cleaned jalapeno peppers and 1 whole mild green chili and 1/2 a vidalia onion in the blender and pulsed about 4 times. I then added this mixture to the marinara sauce. I also used hot sausage like others suggested.
