    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    This complete recipe is made in one pot over the stove. This is a "killer" dish, and very easy to make. You can really use how many Italian sausages you desire, I like to use 5 spicy sausages, along with the ground beef... I have even made this dish using about 2 pounds all sausage meat with the casings removed. The jalapeno pepper is optional, add it in if you like heat. Serve this with crusty rolls or bread. You can even cook the pasta before adding it in, or use any small leftover cooked pasta for this dish.

      This was GREAT! I used 2 jalapeno's, tripled the garlic, and used all hot chicken italian sausage. I also increased the crushed red pepper a bit but followed the rest as stated. SUPER yummy dish! Believe it or not, it was not too hot for my 2 and 4 year old. My 4 year old picked out the pasta and ate it and my 2 year old ate and loved all the beans. Oh! I forgot that the I kept the pasta on the side, made a whole pound and added it to each person's liking. We like more pasta than anything else so we were all in heaven with this one. Will definitely make this again! Wonderful!
