VERY tasty !! Had just bought several packs of sweet Italian sausages from Costco. "Removing from casing" is a messy deal ! I cut the sausages into 1" pieces, THEN flipped the casing off. Forgot to pick up squash, but had a few bags of frozen red and green pepper pieces in the freezer from last summer's garden -- cut them in strips and added after the onion had softened. Completed per recipe, but had left-over plain risotto, which did very well with the sauce. Have PLENTY more for a pasta night ! Thanks for posting !

I made this for New Kids on the Block and it was absolutely wonderful. Instead of serving over the pasta, I tossed the cooked noodles in with the mixture to coat the noodles with the sauce. I used egg noodles. It was great. That was the only change I made. Will make again.
