    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    Using purchased pasta sauce reduces the cooking time, this is even better the next day, you may adjust the fresh garlic and chili flakes to suit taste ---if you like even more garlic then saute 2 tablespoons chopped fresh garlic in with the onion mixture :)

      I should have taken your advice about adding fresh garlic to the mix - it just felt like something was missing. I did like how thick it came out. My son dosen't like mushrooms, so next time, I think I'll saute them alone and chop in food processor. Thanks, Kitten.

      I used 1 jar of vegetarian bolognese sauce (reduced-fat) and 1 jar of tomato and basil sauce (reduced-fat). I omitted the sausages and oil to reduce the fat. It's great for a spaghetti sauce with store-bough jars. Thanks Kit. Made for 123 hit wonders

      Wonderful sauce. I cut the amound of sausage in half and sauteed my mushrooms and I used Prego for the sauce. Would make this again in a heartbeat and my kids gave it both thumbs up. We left the pepper flakes to be added by those who wanted them...I can't help it if I have woosiez in the house, lol...Thanks Kitten for a wonderful sauce.(((Auntie Jan)))
