Green bell peppers 2 , washed and cut into strips about 1 inch long

Chopped parsley 1/3 Cup (5.33 tbs) , washed, dried, and snipped ((May Use More / Less Than 1/3 Cup))


Brown the 18-oz. sliced Italian sausage in a deep skillet over medium heat. Stir gently to brown, but do not stir vigorously, as this will crumble the sausage.) When done, remove sausage with a slotted spoon, and place on paper toweling to drain. Cook 2 chopped green peppers, 2 chopped red peppers, and 2 chopped onions in the pan drippings 5 to 6 minutes, or until tender. Add browned Italian sausage, 24-oz. Italian sauce, and 14-oz. pizza sauce. Simmer, uncovered, over low heat, stirring occasionally. Place cooked spaghetti in the bottom of a large platter. Spoon the sausage mixture over the spaghetti. Sprinkle with 1/2 cup grated Romano cheese and 1/3 cup snipped parsley. Serve immediately. This dish is wonderful with Italian or French bread and a green salad. If you are looking for a easy, but impressive, dinner for your sweetheart on Valentine's day, this could be it! Enjoy!!! Happy Valentine's Day! --Betty :)
