Added saute'd onions in olive oil and doubled the cheese. Was a hit! Thanks :)

To make it cook faster (late dinner), I used Ronzoni's Quick Cook rotini pasta and I didn't have sauce so I skipped that part. Only needed to simmer about 8 minutes. It was delicious and a big hit even with the picky toddler. This will stay in my rotation.

I was reading the comments. Why do some people have absolutely NO CLASS. The person that made the comment about it looks like vomit in a pan. If you cannot say something nice than don't say anything at all, because it shows how stupid you really are. I haven't tried the recipe yet, but will do so and add a few spices and some garlic and I just bet it will be delicious.

I make this by adding mushrooms, onion, garlic, a little shredded carrot and whatever else sounds good to the sauce. Instead of penne, I use the Vegetini to make spiral "pasta" from green squash for a lower cal dish. Just add fresh basil and a little parm at the end. De-lish!!

I added some chopped onion, chopped fresh mushrooms to the sausage, and some minced garlic. I added some oregano & basil (both dried) to the sauce. I cooked the pasta on the side. The sauce is thin, but has excellent flavor (attributed also to the Hot Sausage I used). The sauce absorbes into the pasta, and is an excellent, quick, meal. And to think the reason I came upon it was to find a way to use up the Hunts Tomato Sauce cans in my pantry. I'll be making this again soon. is a really good website. Thanks!
