Rigatoni with a Kick!

Top Review by Rita1652

Kicking! YES! I used 2 pounds of sausage, 1 large onion, 10 ounces mushrooms. To that I added 4 pounds sauce kicking it up with garlic, parsley, oregano and pepper flakes. Then I removed 2 cups of the sauce after simmering for 15 minutes, for pizza the next day and used the rest for this recipe. I stirred in undercooked pasta because it will continue to cook in the oven. I did use all the mozzarella in the toss of pasta and sauce then added an additional cup for the topping. DH said Ohhh Yeah>>>>>> That being said thanks for the 5 star meal!
