      Well done recipe! I did not have the sausage so I used the bulk italian sausage I had. Rather than pasta sauce and tomatoes I used a can of chopped tomatoes. I made up for the consistency (thin) with half and half instead of milk, and I had to simmer it longer to thin it. But the concept of the recipe was great. I was going to make a pretty boring penne dish until I saw this! Loaded with great ideas!

      We will def make this again. I didn't have red or yellow peppers, so used a half of a green pepper. It may have helped that I used a Sweet Pepper spaghetti sauce. Husband loved it. Only thing is I think a pound of pasta is a little too much for the amount of sauce that this makes. Next time I would use 1/2 -3/4 of the box.
