      This was really yummy!! I had to make 2 versions; 1 using cavatappi pasta as it is stated in the recipe, and 1 using gluten free pasta quills, so I could try it,,,the verdict was unanimous,,use any pasta and this is delicious!

      From all the recipes submitted for the RSC #16 contest, this is one of three I have decided to try and review. Since I am single and cook for myself, I have halved this recipe. I also used hot Italian sausage (which I had at hand) and two types of colored peppers. Also, the supermarket had Gorgonzola with blue cheese, so I bought this type. I had never used Gorgonzola cheese and it was a wonderful surprise. I liked the cheese very much. Overall, this recipe easily gets a 5 star rating and I was really happy I made it! Of the three recipes I made for the contest, for me this was my #1 choice, Congratulations on a great recipe!
