Better than takeout!!, Member harpermom1987

I was nervous to make this recipe because I have had some very nasty turnouts with other recipes I tried from online. This, however, was not one of them!! It turned out amazing!! I added extra peppers(yellow and red bell peppers) and doubled the sauce. It was so good even my picky children were eating it!!!
