REVIEW: 5 star recipe rating
I use a sweet onion instead of white and hot sausage. I also use red wine instead of white. I use frozen peas and no need to thaw them just throw them in the sauce while it cooks.

I just made this awesome pasta for my family tonight. We have had it several times at a great restaurant downtown Chicago and now I can make it at home just as good. An easy, outstanding recipe. Thanks
