This is a great recipe. You can add so many twist to this to fit your family's tastes. I put 2 cleaned jalapeno peppers and 1 whole mild green chili and 1/2 a vidalia onion in the blender and pulsed about 4 times. I then added this mixture to the marinara sauce. I also used hot sausage like others suggested.

Like one of the reviewers said, Hot Italian Sausage would really make this pop! A very easy recipe but so good everytime. Those pictures posted by Bergy are great too. Thanks for sharing!

I love sausage & peppers and this recipe didn't let me down. I used Marsala wine that really mellowed out the peppers and added a pinch of chili flakes. I had some cooked noodles that I added right into the pan. Very enjoyable dinner - Thanks for posting
