      Great verastile basic recipe. We didn't have italian sausage on hand, so I just threw in some smoked sausage that I had sauteed with onions. I also omitted the red pepper because not everyone likes the heat. I threw a cup of chopped zucchini into the sauce for some extra veggie action. Baked for about 25 minutes. The family loved it! I will be making this again. Thanks!
