My family adored this recipe! I didn't have any tomatoes with chiles so I used a can of fire roasted diced tomatoes with a can of diced green chiles. My husband said it was like eating a sausage sandwich. Thank you for posting. I will make this again!
This was so easy and delicious. I had the sausage already cooked and cut up so I threw all but the noodles in the pot on high for 2 hours. Put the pasta in for approx 30 minutes and voila! Definitely will make this again.
A great meal for a busy day or when you feel like having Italian! The canned chiles and tomato made it a bit spicy so next time I'll just use half the can. But it still was quite delicious!
