Ingredients

Preparation

Sear sausage in a large stockpot; remove and set aside. Add olive oil to pot; sauté bell peppers, onion, mushrooms, garlic and Italian seasoning for about 6 minutes. Slice sausage into thin rounds, return to pot and cook an additional 6 minutes. Pour both Classico sauces into pot; add parsley and lemon juice. Reduce heat to low; simmer 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.

In a separate pot, bring lightly salted water to a boil. Cook 1 lb. of pasta to al dente. Strain; pour pasta into stewed sausage and alfredo and simmer together for 4-5 minutes.

*Our pasta of choice is a cut called radiatori. It has deep ridges, which are perfect for holding sauce. Any pasta cut will do though!

Serve with garlic bread and a light Caesar salad on the side.
