      I was looking for a way to use 5 brats leftover from a weekend get together. I followed the recipe to a T and it was ok, but just not great for us. My husband thought the sauce needed tomatoes.

      Had some defrosted brats in my refrigerator & wanted something different. When I came across this recipe, I thought I'd try it. It's pretty awesome. My husband had 3 helpings!! And he kept saying how strong the flavors were. I did make some substitutions since I didn't have all the ingredients. Used Penne pasta & alcoholic Apple Cider instead of rigatoni & beer. Also, used Colby Jack since it was what i had in the fridge. I had only one green pepper as well, so to add more veggies, I threw in some mushrooms & tomatoes, sliced. And used 1/8 cup of dried basil instead of fresh. I did leave the veggies in the oven longer, since I think the mushrooms & tomatoes made it more liquidy. Again, great recipe!! Love, love, love it!
