      I know some folks don't like when you do this - but I used this recipe as a base and enjoyed the results. I'm writing them here - so others can utilize the info - or ignore as you choose. I started with Chicken sausage, garlic, onion, Jalapeno, two cans of rotel tomatoes (drained), frozen corn (about a cup and a half), large can (6 oz) green chiles and dried green and red peppers (cause I didn't have fresh). As far as spices I used a tsp or two of the following: adobo seasoning, chipolte pepper, mesquite smoke and taco seasoning. And lastly, a dash of cayenne. Put all over the pasta and added about 3/4 C cheese at the end. I enjoyed this - hope someone gets benefit from this info.... :)

      Very good, though no leftovers! Might go ahead and double next time. I think that it would be good with some chicken too for a milder taste (with maybe a little taco seasoning or something). Thanks :)

      with a few alterations to the recipe, we really enjoyed this dish, I used extra spicy chorizo and added in 2 heaping tablespoons of fresh minced garlic when sauteeing the sausage and veggies, I also added in some crushed red chili flakes, I think this would also be great with rice, thanks for sharing MsSally!
